Ingredients

    This is my version (I greased the pan with cooking spray instead of butter):

    Organic Valley Egg Whites, 1.5 cup
    Whole Foods Organic Quinoa, 0.5 cup
    Horizon Organic Reduced Fat Milk, 1.25 cup
    Garlic, 1 clove
    Thyme, fresh, 1 tsp
    Salt, 1 dash
    Pepper, black, 1 dash
    Earthbound Farm Organic Baby Spinach, 3 oz
    Kraft Fat Free Mozzarella, 0.75 cup

    This is what the original calls for:

    1 teaspoon butter
    1/2 cup uncooked quinoa
    8 eggs
    1 1/4 cups milk
    1 tablespoon chopped garlic
    1 teaspoon chopped thyme
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon pepper
    2 cups packed baby spinach, roughly chopped
    1 cup finely shredded Romano or Parmesan cheese

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease an 8-inch x 8-inch glass or metal baking dish with butter; set aside.

Put quinoa into a fine mesh strainer and rinse until cold running water until water runs clear; drain well.

In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, garlic, thyme, salt, pepper and quinoa. Stir in spinach then pour mixture into prepared dish. Cover tightly with foil then jiggle dish gently from side to side so that quinoa settles on the bottom in an even layer. Bake until just set, about 45 minutes. Remove foil and sprinkle top evenly with cheese. Return to oven and bake, uncovered, until golden brown and crisp, 10 to 15 minutes more. Set aside to let cool briefly, then slice and serve.
