Quinoa and Veggie Egg Bake

This is so good and I’m glad I found another use for my cooked quinoa. It’s a simple dish and a great way to clean out your fridge of all the little bits and pieces that would otherwise go to waste. Baked egg dishes are so easy and versatile and this one is a great example of that. The quinoa adds a pleasing texture and flavor to this and ups the protein and fiber content of this tasty breakfast. I will make these again, and again. Thanks for reading, enjoy!
