I was going to post some delicious gluten free biscuit (cookies for non aussies) recipes but instead I have decided to go healthy. This recipe for Quinoa Frittatas is one I make for my daughters for their school lunches. They are full of yummy veggies, cheese and what is life without cheese? and of course Quinoa an excellent source of protein, fibre, carbs etc.
This is a super healthy but super yummy recipe.
This recipe will make 12 Quinoa Frittatas in a large muffin pan
Cook 1 cup of quinoa in a saucepan with 2 1/2 cups of water and one vegetable gluten free stock cube. I use Massels stock cubes which also have no nasties like msg.
1/2 cup of gluten free self raising flour. I use white wings but any brand or type is fine.
salt – just a pinch
Herbs, just a handful chopped well, I use what ever is growing well in my pot plants on the back verandah, today is was oregano and thyme.
6 cups of mixed finely diced or grated vegetables. I used mushroom, grated zucchini, capsicum, spanish onion, carrot – what ever you have on hand will work. I have used grated sweet potato which was yum.
2 cups of cheese, I use 1 cup of tasty and 1 cup of shredded parmesan
Combine this and spoon into 12 lined large muffin pans.
Sprinkle a little cheese on top.
Cook at 375 degrees for 20 minutes
