Anything Goes Quinoa Frittatas

Barbara Pace


I hadn't found a quinoa recipe I liked, but I found a recipe that had promise. It served as the inspiration for these mini frittatas. You can add any ingredients and spices you like to suit your taste and dietary needs. They can also be baked as regular or large muffins by adjusting the baking time. Refrigerate or freeze and pop them in the microwave for an easy snack or meal. Make them healthy or decadent, just be sure to season well, as they can be bland.
