Scramble egg and whites with milk and mushroom flavored water (Use the water from soaking and cooking the shitake dried mushrooms, for incredible mushroom flavor).
Place quinoa in hot pan, spreading fairly evenly along bottom and partially up sides of frying pan, working quickly. Lay in mushrooms, sprinkle evenly with parmesan. Lay slice of swiss on top.
Carefully pour egg mixture ensuring it is distributed throughout the fritata. Keep heat high for 5 minutes until sides are bubbling/cooking. Transfer skillet to over ad finish cooking under broiler (not too close - about 5-7 inches away) until middle is just set and top is lightly browned, approx 15 minutes.
