  • 1 cup finely grated cheddar cheese, plus extra for topping
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1 cup grated broccoli crown
  • 12 eggs
  • ¼ tsp turmeric
  • ¼ tsp cumin
  • ¼ tsp pepper


  • Preheat oven to 350 F and lightly grease about 24 mini muffin tins.
  • To a bowl, mix together the quinoa, cheese, broccoli, eggs, turmeric, cumin and pepper. Top with additional grated cheese, if desired.
  • Divide the mixture between the mini muffin tins and bake for 10 minutes, or until set. Allow to cool before serving.



  • Use silicone muffin cups if you have some. I’m obsessed with mine (and also use them to make these chocolate peanut butter cups so there’s that as an incentive as well). But these will make your clean-up SO much easier.
  • The quickest way to grate a broccoli crown is by running it through a food processor. You can also use a box grater to grate the broccoli.
  • I love these for Baby E, and for me is that they're essentially a "meal in one bite". All of the food groups are represented. We've got quinoa (whole grain with protein and iron), cheese (dairy with protein), broccoli (veggies with iron), and eggs (protein with iron). Having said that, if you know your kiddo loves cauliflower or tomatoes more than broccoli, or that's what you have on hand, you can make these your own! You can also add in any other leftover grain you've got in the house.
