"Breakfast can be the most important meal of the day, but it is also very important for it to be healthy"


  • zucchini - 3.5 oz (100 g)
  • yellow cheese - 3.5 oz (100 g) (Gouda, Cheddar and others)
  • eggs - 3 pcs.
  • ham - 3.5 oz (100 g)
  • quinoa - 3.5 oz (100 g)
  • parsley - bunch
  • mint - 1 tbsp.
  • red peppers - 1 pc.
  • onion - 1/2 pcs
  • black pepper

How to cook

Quinoa is a superfood that contains 9 essential amino acids and is a complex source of protein. Just 1 cup of quinoa contains 8 grams of protein, 5 grams of fiber, iron, magnesium, folic acid and omega-3 fatty acids for a healthy heart.

It is anti-inflammatory and has a positive effect on the blood vessels. Since it does not contain gluten, quinoa is suitable for people who stick to a gluten-free diet.

First: I wash the quinoa, a few times, with water.

Then I put the quinoa in a small saucepan. Boil it as if I'm boiling rice, for about 15 minutes. Finally, I discard the excess water.

On the stove in a pan, stew the finely chopped onions, peppers, seasoned with black pepper until they soften. After two or three minutes they should be ready, so you can now leave them to cool.

Next step: Grate the zucchini and yellow cheese on the wider side of a grater, finely chop the ham, parsley and mint. I add the stewed onions and peppers to the zucchini and yellow cheese.

Mix all products and stir. Distribute the mixture into the muffin tin tray.

I then place the savory muffins in the oven at 392°F (200 degrees) for 30 minutes.
