  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Prepare 6 muffin cups with cooking spray.
  2. Beat quinoa, eggs, feta cheese, mushrooms, onion, thyme, salt, and pepper together in a large bowl. Spoon into prepared muffin cups to about halfway full.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until edges brown and the tops are firm to the touch, 20 to 30 minutes.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

Great idea. I doubled it with red onion, monetary jack cheese and some mashed avocado. I would like to maybe try some lowfat cottage cheese added too. Very good with avacado tomato or ketchup as...

These turned out awesome! I added orange bell pepper and some cooked bacon bits on top. I also added some red pepper flakes to spice it up. Great for work, very filling.

Just saw it and made! This was very delicious. The dish did remind me of a quiche, as mentioned in the previous review. Very flavorful, going to share with my family. Could be poured more that h...

These quinoa muffins came out amazing!! I doubled the recipe and used 1/2 cup chopped cherry tomatoes, 1/2 cup shredded zucchini, 1/3ish cup chopped spinach, 1/2 of a yellow bell pepper, and 1/2...
