Equipment

  • Silicone Muffin Pans

Ingredients

  • softened butter for greasing pans
  • 1.5 cups cooked quinoa
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 cups grated mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup finely diced red onion
  • 1 cup finely diced Roma tomato
  • 3 tbsp basil (sliced chiffonade style)
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 12 eggs
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • salt & pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Heat a large pan on medium heat on the stove. Add in the olive oil, vegetables, and garlic powder. 
  • Saute the vegetables until well caramelized. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  • Add the cooked quinoa to the saute'd veggies. Set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs and lemon juice, and season with salt and pepper. 
  • Using a well greased silicone muffin pan, evenly distribute the quinoa veggie mixture into 18 muffin wells.
  • Add in the egg mixture to each muffin well - distribute as even as possible. Use a small spoon to mix the ingredients in each muffin mold well.
  • Bake in a 375 degree oven for 15-20 minutes or until the egg is just set.
  • Allow the muffins to cool completely and remove from the pan.
  • Transfer the muffins to a container and refrigerate up to 4 days or into the freezer for 3 months.

Reheat Instructions

  • Place the muffin on a paper towel (to absorb excess moisture) and microwave for 30 seconds.

Reheat Instructions (from frozen)

  • Place the muffin on a paper towel (to absorb excess moisture) and microwave for 90 seconds. The muffins will give off much more moisture when reheated from frozen. Make sure you place a paper town underneath your muffin to prevent soggy muffins!
