  • Made this for a ladies luncheon. Had a power...

    Made this for a ladies luncheon. Had a power outage 10 minutes into bake time and had to finish cooking it at my friends. Still turned out tasty. Should mention it was hard to get all the spinach to fit in the in the simmering basket. Also used tasty cheese instead of chedder and the cheese turned almost into butter, so re cut some cheese and put it on speed 10 for 2 seconds and it came out perfect. Really like the Quinoa in the recipe.

  • Served this hot when I made

    Served this hot when I made it for a luncheon yesterday and then had it cold for dinner that night.  I preferred it cold, my husband preferred it hot.  He really enjoyed it.  Quite easy to make and we could prepare it earlier and put it in the fridge before baking it later.  We liked the idea that it was based on quinoa and was more like an impossible pie than a pastry based quiche.  Thank you for the recipe.
