This baked mixture of quinoa, spinach, cottage cheese, and eggs is substantial enough to serve on its own. In place of fresh spinach, you can also use 3/4 cup frozen, chopped spinach that has been thawed.
Excellent recipe with one alteration. I added goat cheese instead of farmers cheese, which made for much more flavorful dish.
The idea of this recipe is good, but I want to share how I tweaked it to give others a chance to try it: I followed the suggestions here and added 4 eggs instead of two. I didn't care for the cottage cheese idea, so I added extra sharp cheddar in its place. I cooked the quinoa in vegetable broth and instead of the fresh herbs (I didn't have any) I used 1/2 tsp poultry seasoning. Halfway through the cooking I topped it with a mixture of panko and parmesan. It was hit! Tasted like quiche!

Pretty simple! I agree with most of the reviews on here, so I spiced mine up a little. Sriracha, salt, pepper, cloves of garlic were added to the quinoa so that it had more flavor and I took the idea of another reviewer and added some parmesan cheese to the mix. I did see that the mixture was going to be a little more dry than I would prefer so I added 4 eggs instead of two. I added panko and parmesan to the top for some texture and baked it half covered with foil and half off. Delicious!
I just made this recipe this week. It was a bit dry. I feel as if bacon would bring it around
