  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 3 eggs
  • 500 ml water
  • 6 tbsp mustard
  • 3 zucchinis
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1/2 cup grated cheese of your choice
  • Salt to taste


  • In a pot, pour the water, once it is boiling, add the quinoa. Cook for about 20-25 minutes or until tender. Allow to cool down.
  • In a bowl, beat the eggs, add salt and pepper to taste. Add the quinoa, previously drained. Mix. Spread a thick layer in your individual molds (mine are like mini cheesecake molds).
  • On each of them, spread a spoon of mustard - I prefer whole grain mustard ''A l'ancienne''.
  • Wash your zucchinis and slice them thin. Put them on your quinoa crust.
  • Cut your red pepper in brunoise and distribute them on your pie as a topping.
  • Add your grated cheese. On this one, I did not put any cheese, but the first time I did it I added crumbles of goat cheese.
  • Cook in the oven 15-20 minutes at 400F.
