I received this recipe from a friend who found it on the Whole Foods website. It was written as a casserole, but of course, I found a way to make it a pie. One of the primary ingredients is quinoa.
What, you may ask is quinoa (pronounced keen-wah)? According to Wikipedia, quinoa is a grain-like crop grown primarily for its edible seeds. Sounds yummy right?
I first learned about Quinoa when I was pregnant with our second child over 5 years ago. As a vegetarian, I am always looking for ways to add protein to my diet. Quinoa, which is similar in texture to couscous or rice, it high in protein. It is also easy and cheap to make.
My family liked this pie and the kids suggested we call it “qweesh” for quinoa quiche. I am just thankful it didn’t make anyone queasy. Ha ha!
