I'm alive! And back with a delicious recipe you must try tonight! Quinoa bites! Full of sweet and spicy flavors.
These are some pretty tasty little things. If you need a healthy, savory appetizer or a side to your main dish--these are your ticket! I put these together in no time, and got them out of the oven as the evening sunset was fading away.
I ate these with some homemade chili. They're probably the perfect accompaniment to some delicious minestrone soup! I adapted the recipe from this lovely blog.
2 cups cooked quinoa = about 1 cup dried quinoa + 2 cups water (you'll have some extra)
3/4 cups Gruyere cheese, grated (I used Gouda because that's what Sprout's had and--let's be honest--gouda is delicious)
2 eggs, beaten
1 clove garlic, minced
1 Tbsp cilantro, chopped
2 green onions, thinly sliced
1 Tbsp honey
2 Tbsp Siracha sauce
1/2 tsp salt (I didn't use salt)
1/2 cup breadcrumbs (I used oat bran instead)
1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
2. Mix everything together in a bowl.
3. Spoon out mixture into a greased cupcake pan. Fill each cup up to the top and pat down firmly. I barely managed to fill all cups in a 12 muffin-cup pan.
4. Bake for 30 minutes or until nice and browned on top.
5. Let cool for 5 minutes and then serve these nice and warm!
