Quinoa Pizza Bites : Original recipe

  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • ½ cup shredded cheese + 2 tablespoons of cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 3 tablespoons of marinara sauce
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3 teaspoons italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • Marinara Sauce, for dipping

How to Cook the Quinoa
  1. Mix ½ cup uncooked and washed quinoa with 1 ¼ cups water and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil first and then lower heat. Cook the quinoa for about 15 minutes until fluffy. You should get about 1 ½ cups of cooked quinoa (you only need 1 cup for the recipe, so you could always make extra pizza bites or use it another time).
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  3. Grease a 12 mini muffin tin pan.
  4. Mix all of the ingredients together.
  5. Put a tablespoon into each muffin tin, packing them in.
  6. Bake for 12-15 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven and top with remaining 2 tablespoons of cheese. Broil for about 1 minute (please watch them, they burn easily).
  8. After broiling, allow to cool on a wire rack for about 15 minutes and then remove from pan.
  9. Serve with Marinara Sauce.

  1. Considering the fact that I love quinoa but never really know how to cook it differently than just plain, I might try your recipe one of the days ! Too bad that we can't see any picture of it, but I'm pretty sure it tastes great :)
