It’s so easy to run out of ideas for school lunches or healthy snacks to have on hand in the fridge. Often this results in us going for a less nutritious (or sometimes sugary) option which doesn’t really support growing or fully grown bodies. Here is a simple frittata recipe using quinoa and fresh vegetables that is a delicious option for those looking for a little healthy inspiration.

Preparation time: 1/2 hour

Cooking time: 1/2 hour (approx)

Serves: 25 bite size muffins


  • 1 cup of cooked organic tri-coloured quinoa
  • 6 eggs
  • ½ red capsicum, diced
  • 1 large carrot, grated
  • 1 small red onion, diced
  • 1 cup green peas
  • 3/4 cup choice of gluten free plain flour
  • 1/2 cup Feta cheese, crumbled (optional for those who are dairy free)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Handful fresh basil & thyme leaves, torn
  • Olive oil for greasing


  1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  2. Cook the quinoa set aside to cool (for simple instructions click here)
  3. In a large saucepan, gently fry off the onion, capsicum and carrot on medium heat until lightly brown and softenened (about 10 minutes).
  4. Transfer the cooked quinoa to a mixing bowl and add the rest of the prepared ingredients, mix thoroughly to combine.
  5. Grease (well) a mini muffin tray with olive oil and gently spoon the mixture, filling it almost to the top. Place in the oven and bake for 20-30 minutes or until golden brown on the edges.
  6. Allow to cool slightly before serving. Prepare a quick leafy green salad if enjoying these muffins for lunch or dinner. Enjoy!
