Quinoa muffins…

Yes, I made quinoa muffins! I know it sounds really hipster and actually disgusting, but believe me they taste amazing!

In March I moved into a new home together with my boyfriend, so it was time for a housewarming. A great excuse to go make heaps amount of food and go all-out in my new fancy-smancy kitchen.

I also wanted to make some healthy dishes besides the millionaire shortbread. So I found this recipe from Chickslovefood, a great website with easy recipes! I slightly adjusted the recipe and this is what it looks like:

Ingredients for 16 muffins:

  • 150 grams of cooked quinoa
  • 6 eggs
  • 150 grams of feta (I used Dodoni feta, the best one!)
  • half a courgette, finely chopped
  • 1 red onion, finely chopped

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven at 190 degrees.
  2. Place the cooked quinoa in a large bowl and mix together with the eggs
  3. Add the courgette, onion and feta into the bowl as well and add salt, pepper, chili flakes to taste.
  4. If you use a muffin baking tin, place baking paper in the cups and add the mixture into it. Make sure to cut them big enough, so they cover the full cup. For a silicon muffin tray, this is not neccessary.
  5. Place the muffin tins in the oven for about 30 minutes or until they are nicely brown.

Enjoy!
