Preheat oven to 160c.

In a bowl whisk together the eggs, milk, garlic, thyme, salt, pepper and nutmeg.

Add quinoa and spinach into the baking dish and pour over the egg mixture, stir gently.

Cover with a lid or foil and bake until just set for around 30 minutes.

Heat a fry pan, spray with oil. Add cherry tomatoes and cook gently until slightly softened. Finish by adding onto the bake.
