Spinach Quinoa Bake

Since I discovered quinoa, a few years ago, I have used in a multitude of ways.  I made a big batch today and I made both this kugel like dish and maple muffins.  How yummy each one was!

Spinach Quinoa Bake


1 pound fresh baby spinach

1 - 2 teaspoons olive oil
1 red onion, diced
1/8 teaspoon chili powder
2 cups cooked quinoa
1 cup sour cream
2  eggs, lightly beaten (I used 1 whole egg and 2 whites)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Spray a square pan with cooking spray.

Clean spinach and drain well.

Place spinach in a bowl and put aside.

In a small skillet, heat olive oil.  Add onion and cook until soft, about 5 - 7 minutes.  Add chili powder to onion for 1 additional minute.

Put onion in medium sized bowl.  

Add spinach, cooked quinoa, sour cream, and eggs to the onion mixture.

Combine all the ingredients.

Place quinoa mixture to baking dish and place in 350 degree oven. 

Bake until about 30 minutes.
