Last night we had Mexican Quinoa for dinner. You can find recipe here. Since that original post, 3 years ago, I have modified it and eliminated the salami, making it a vegetarian dish. Like many one pan dishes, the quantities are very flexible so you can easily adapt it to the number you are serving.
As I often do, I made more than I needed last night. Instead of simply reheating for lunches or freezing for a future meal, I decided to make an entirely new dish.
Here is the leftover quinoa and some of the other ingredients.
I used my basic zucchini quiche recipe with some modifications. Instead of zucchini I grated 1 large carrot, the leftover quinoa and about a cup of baby spinach which I roughly chopped. I did not use the onion as there was onion and other flavourings in the quinoa dish.
I would normally serve this with salad but I was inspired by what I had picked from the garden this afternoon.
The quiche turned out really well.
Served with balsamic roasted cherry tomatoes and butter beans.
There is no photo but we finished off the meal with ice-cream and fresh homegrown raspberries.
