Quinoa & Egg Muffins

by Lisa K. on Tue, August 08, 2017

This dish was a tasty surprise. A healthy combination of grains, green and protein, great as a light lunch or a snack. Serve it up as you like. Even though this recipe is meat free, the quinoa gave it a satisfying bite that will keep you fuller for longer.

A tasty and considerably healthy snack!

Serves 4 people

Rinse the quinoa with some water to reduce the slight bitter taste.

To soften the leeks faster, add in a splash of water and cover with a lid. The steam will speed up the process.

3. Wash and chop up the leeks and spring onion. Keep them separated.

4. Melt a knob of butter in a sauté pan and gently sauté off leeks and spring onion until they are soft. Do not brown them.

6. Pour them into the ramekins and bake them in the oven. 10 minutes for small ramekins, 15 minutes for large ramekins.

7. Remove from the oven when it is ready. Serve with hot or cold with a side of salad or keep it in the fridge for a tasty snack.
