Quinoa contains more protein than any other grain, and is considered a complete protein because it contains all eight essential amino acids. Quinoa is also higher in unsaturated fats and lower in carbohy-drates than most other grains that are available today.
For a lower fat quiche dish, use egg substitutes in place of whole eggs.

Add your favorite vegetables like asparagus, spinich, red and green bell peppers but don't forget to use low fat cheeses and fat free milk alternatives.
