Author's Notes

Dampen fingers with water when pressing quinoa into muffin tin, it will help prevent quinoa sticking too much to your fingers. Quinoa cups can be wrapped in plastic wrap and frozen. Allow to thaw completely prior to reheating in microwave - eggs will be slightly more cooked but just as tasty and makes for a portable, convenient breakfast or snack.
