Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F.

In 1 tablespoon olive oil, sauté the leek over a medium flame until tender.

Once leek is tender, add quinoa and toast for 3 minutes, stirring often. Add the water and a 1/8 teaspoon salt and cook over medium heat for 15 minutes, or until all the water is absorbed. Cover and set aside.

In a separate frying pan, add the garlic and the other tablespoon of olive oil and sauté over medium heat for 30 seconds. Add zucchini and sauté for 5 minutes, or until tender. Set aside to cool.

In a bowl, mix mayonnaise, eggs, and curry thoroughly. Stir in the zucchini and quinoa and mix well. Pour the mixture into an 8-inch round baking dish and bake for 40 minutes, or until golden brown
