Friday Food: Cheesy Zucchini Quinoa Muffins

This one just sounded a little too different not to get it our there and share it. After getting into the recipe a little bit more it actually sounds pretty good.  Sorry this is a no go for anyone watching their dairy intake but overall it is very good for you.  Hope you enjoy.

-4 eggs
-2 egg whites
-1/4 cup milk
-1/2 yellow onion, sautéed until softened
-1 cup cooked quinoa
-1 cup shredded zucchini, excess liquid squeezed out
-Hot sauce to taste (about 1 tsp)
-Kosher salt and black pepper to taste
-1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

The How-To

-In a small skillet sauté the onion until it has softened, about 2-3 minutes.
-In a mixing bowl whisk together the eggs, milk, salt, pepper and hot sauce until combined.
-Whisk in the zucchini, quinoa, onion and 3/4 cup of the shredded cheese.
-Pour the mixture evenly into each muffin cup and top them with the remaining 1/4 cup shredded cheese.
