Serve as breakfast, snack or at your party! These muffins are unbelievable I think. It looks so much like a pastry and it sure tastes good too. If you don’t know what to do with your quinoa, start with these muffins. These muffins would suit vegetarians.

Ingredients

100 g cheddar cheese

2 pcs eggs

1 pc pepper

1 pc onion

2 pcs carrot

2 tbsp yoghurt

1 tsp salt

2 tbsp butter

1 bunch parsley

100 g quinoa

Method

Cook the quinoa in lightly salted water for about 15 minutes or according to manufacturer’s instruction. Drain the quinoa and allow to cool.

Peel the carrot nicely using a vegetable peeler and slice the onion and pepper. Set them aside.

Melt the butter in a frying pan, add the onion, pepper and carrot to the pan and saute for about 10-15 minutes. While the vegetables are sauteing, whisk the eggs, yoghurt, grated cheese and parsley (chopped) in a large bowl until well blended. You can add a few pinch of oregano if desired.

Add the quinoa to the bowl and sauteed vegetables to the bowl and mix until well combined. Add salt to taste.

Line your muffin tins with cupcake paper and fill each case with the mixture (fill to the top or a bit more).

Peel the potatoes and cut into ½-inch cubes and set them aside. You will also have to chop the onions, mince the garlic and chop the tomatoes roughly.
