Red Quinoa Quiche

Hi. You know me. I like to stick weird things in food.

Not that quinoa is weird or anything! But red quinoa? Who the what the where the when the how?

Actually red quinoa isn’t weird at all either. Now, if the red quinoa was wearing a tutu, a French beret and jumping on a pogo stick, THAT would be weird.

But that just sounds like fun.

I like fun.

I want a pogo stick.

Look at this quiche. Guess what I did. I replaced heavy cream with red quinoa. Do you hate me?

I really like red quinoa, you guys. The little spirals are like party favors in my mouth hole.

So when you think about it, this red quinoa quiche is kind of like a pinata, and the fork is the freaked out kid with the bat, and your life is the confetti-quinoa-spiral-showering-down-dance party.

I like dance parties.

I bet you’re WIGGING OUT to make this red quinoa quiche. I don’t think I’ve ever said “wigging out.” I don’t think I ever will again.

I haven’t even mentioned what else is inside this quiche. If I did, we’d be looking at a high risk of possible fatal freak-attacks, and I just can’t be responsible for something like that today.

I’ll just let this here article share all the secrets of the life you could be living.

I’m seriously going to go buy a pogo stick.

    I freaking LOVE pogo sticks. Friends have an antque one that I got over 100 'pogos' on one day. Told you, I like pogo sticks, and I'd challenge anyone to a pogo dual! Which would work up an appetite, and then I'd scarf this quiche!

    I always reach for the red quinoa instead of the regular kind when I'm making it. It's just FUN! ;)

    Red quinoa is so much fun to use. I love the taste and texture of quinoa and knowing how healthy it is makes it all the better!

    I want a piñata filled with this quiche! Not only would the result be delicious, but I would get to hit something. Really really hard.

    I've never had red quinoa!! What a fabulous discovery. I am now, also, hooked on quiches so I have to give this a try.

    I LOVE you that you replaced the cream with red quinoa. That is exactly why I love you, actually. Making this like... now.

    I actually saw red quinoa at the store the other day - now I wish I would have bought some!

    The quiche sounds great. I'm not coordinated enough for pogo sticks. It never ends well.

    Could I make this crustless?? It sounds delicious.

      You could absolutely make it crustless! Heck, make the quinoa the crust. That would be ar.some.
