Flourless Quinoa and Vegetable Quiche
1 cup uncooked quinoa
3/4 cup shredded cheese
1/3 cup plus 3 Tbsp Sprouts Liquid Egg Whites
1/2 yellow onion, diced
1/4 pound brussel sprouts, trimmed and peeled, sliced
1 medium sweet potato, diced
2/3 cup milk
1/2 tsp mustard powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
Cook the quinoa according to package instructions. Set it aside to cool.
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
Once the quinoa has cooled, add the egg whites and cheese to the pot and stir to combine. Carefully press the quinoa mixture into a greased pie plate. Bake for 15 minutes.
While the crust is baking, sautee the vegetables (onions, sweet potatoes, and brussel sprouts) in avocado oil over medium heat for 10-15 minutes.
Set the vegetables and crust aside to cool.
Combine with eggs, milk, and seasonings in a bowl and whisk to combine.
Add the sauteed vegetables to the pie plate and spread into an even layer. Pour the egg mixture over the vegetables. Return the quiche to the oven and bake for 35-40 minutes or until the eggs have set in the middle. Enjoy!
