Cheesy Quinoa Bites

These delicious patties of goodness are very filling and fun to make! When I dip them in marinara sauce and add chunks of creamy avocado it reminds me of eating...bread sticks actually. So for you gluten free rock stars out there missing the taste of yummy bread sticks, try this.


-Ingredients-
-2 cups of cooked quinoa
-2 large eggs
-1/2 cup chopped carrot
-1 cup sliced green onion
-1/4 tsp black pepper
-2 cloves garlic, minced
-1/2 cup parmesan
-2 tbsp flour (or red mill GF flour)
-1/2 tsp seasoning salt (I like Lawry's)
-Directions-
-Cook quinoa in vegetable broth or low sodium chicken broth. (always rinse quinoa thoroughly before use)
-Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
-mix together all ingredients except quinoa and stir until smooth.
-add cooked quinoa and mix until evenly distributed.
-in a mini muffin tin distribute batter so it fills each cup to the top.
-bake for 13-15 minutes.
