Have you ever started making a recipe then messed it up so badly that you ended up making a completely new recipe?

Well that happened to me today, but you know what it ended up being a good thing. (I’ve had many not end up so happy.) This is how I cam up with my newest recipe:

Quinoa & Zucchini Frittata

This is a recipe that I created by totally messing up Jackie’s Cheesy Quinoa Zucchini Pancakes

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 1 cup zucchini shredded
  • 1/2 tbsp flour
  • egg
  • 1/4 c shredded mexican blend cheese
  • 1 tbsp cilantro
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Preheat broiler
  2. Place quinoa and 1 3/4 cup water in pot.
  3. Bring to boil. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes or till water is all gone.
  4. While cooking quinoa: grate the zucchini. Use paper towel or tea towel to wring out moisture.
  5. Add cheese, flour, egg, cilantro, salt and pepper in a bowl and combine.
  6. When the quinoa is done add to bowl.
  7. Spray small oven safe pan with non-stick spray pour in mixture.
  8. Cook on stove till set – about 3-5 minutes
  9. Place in broiler for 3-5 minutes or till top is browned and cooked through.
  10. Enjoy with a spoonful of light ranch or with a greek yogurt dip of your choice.
