1 muffin

½ cup uncooked quinoa

2 tablespoons olive oil, divided

1 onion, chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 cup finely chopped butternut squash

1 tablespoon curry powder

¾ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon pepper

1 cup chopped collard greens

6 eggs

½ cup milk

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Prepare the quinoa according to package directions. Let cool and set aside.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and swirl to coat the pan. Add the onion and garlic and sauté until soft and fragrant, about 8 minutes.

  4. Stir in the curry powder, salt, and pepper, and cook for an additional 30 seconds.
  5. Add chopped collard greens and stir until they become wilted, about 3 minutes.
  6. In a large mixing bowl, whisk the eggs and milk together until combined.
  7. Add the cooked quinoa and vegetable mixture to the egg mixture and stir to combine.
  8. Use the remaining olive oil to coat 6 cups of a 12-muffin pan. Evenly ladle the egg mixture into the six prepared muffin cups.  Bake for 15 minutes or until eggs are cooked through and golden.
