I get really upset (S says annoying) when I don’t get breakfast in my belly before heading out. It’s my favourite meal of the day and on the rare occasions I miss it, I’ll be found brooding in the corner until I find something or get given something nice to eat.
This phenomenon started since I was a wee kid. I used to wake up my mama dearest at ungoldly hours in the morning just because I was hungry. Crazy kid, I know (and hooray for awesome mums!).
Anyway, I’ve made it a habit now to carry food around in my handbag to avoid being hangry at innocent people in the morning. When I’m feeling fancy, I’ll bake a batch of these quinoa, spinach and cheese cups the night before and grab a couple on the go. It’s a very simple, make ahead, no fuss recipe. Absolutely brilliant.
P.S. I added some sun-dried tomatoes to mine, and they turned out delicious.
P.S.S. If you have any leftover quinoa, make this.
