I LOVE QUINOA

So some of you know that I have been into Weight Watcher’s Simply Filling plan lately. I have a blog on Weight Watchers called “Living Simply,” if you are a member. This is another great recipe that is simply filling friendly.

These little muffins are a great grab and go for breakfast. The original recipe came from Iowa Girl Eats.com. This version cuts out the cheese and are simply filling friendly. If you are working from the pantry set up, you should have quinoa and eggs. Everything else is up to you! Add 1 cup of any veggies and lean meat like canadian bacon. There you go!

Mini Quinoa “muffins”
2 cups cooked quinoa
2 eggs
2 egg whites
1 cup veggies (like shredded zucchini, mushrooms, carrots)
1/2 cup lean meat (or add another veggie like broccoli, or celery)
1 cup cheddar cheese (I omit this but may want to add for guests, or count the points for Weight Watchers)
1/4 cup parsley, cilantro, or chives
1/2 cup onion

Instructions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray mini muffin tins with non stick spray.  Mix all the ingredients together. Fill each cup and bake for 15 to 20 minutes.

Meal Idea
1 cup of oatmeal with berries on top and 2 mini muffins. You will feel great all morning.
In case you were wondering:
I tried to make some in a regular sized muffin tin. They didn’t set up as well, and not as cute!

About Comfort Cooking On Island Time

There are two things I can't resist; an old recipe handed down and passed around, and the beach. Growing up in the midwest I was introduced to true comfort food but always dreamed of a different landscape, and climate. Recently I acquired a 50 year old beach house. While stumbling after the great cooks of my past, I am focused on a future with cool waves and gently breezes......and watermelon rind pickles of course!
