Quinoa Muffins With Vegetables, Gluten-Free

I always have quinoa leftovers ( since buying a 25 lb. bag of quinoa from nutsonline.) I have already made quinoa cookies and quinoa pancakes, so I decided to kick it up a notch with muffins. We try to eat as little dairy as possible, but skimping on the cheese will not make this recipe better – trust me, I tried the whole nutritional yeast route and it made the whole thing dry. So, get your parmesan out and if you’re a vegan, wait for my next recipe. You can try substituting frozen green peas for zucchini: they work very well in this recipe.
