Caprese Quinoa Frittata

  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves, minced
  • 1/2 cup minced onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 12 cherry tomatoes
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a 12-cup, standard-size muffin tin with liners and grease well with non-stick cooking spray or an oil mister.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the quinoa, eggs, 1 cup mozzarella cheese, 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, basil, onion, salt, and pepper until all ingredients are well-incorporated.
  3. Divide mixture equally between muffin tins (I use an ice cream scoop).
  4. Sprinkle each with remaining mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses. Push a cherry tomato about halfway into the top of each.
  5. Bake for about 20 minutes until egg is set and frittatas are golden around the edges.
