The first step to make these Gluten free Cheesy Quinoa Bites is to boil quinoa as per package instructions. Once quinoa is cooked, fluff it with a fork and set aside to cool. After that, the recipe is pretty straightforward.
Combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl, add Crystal Farms ® cheeses and mix until it forms a dough-like mixture. Grease a mini muffin tray and spoon this mixture into each mold. Bake as directed.
Within 20-25 minutes wholesome bite-sized appetizers are ready – ideal for little kids and adults too!
These bite-sized appetizers are packed with pantry/fridge staples – fresh veggies, oats, and quinoa. But this recipe is very flexible and can be easily customized to your liking.
- I have used Crystal Farms® Mild cheddar cheese and Crystal Farms® Jalapeno & Habanero Cheese, but feel free to use cheese of your choice.
- Other veggies like broccoli, grated zucchini, chopped mushrooms and sun-dried tomatoes make a great addition too.
- Want some protein? Feel free to add tofu or meat to these bites.
- An egg can be used as a substitute to the flax-seeds meal.
- Quinoa can be swapped with brown rice, couscous or millet.
These Gluten-free Cheesy Quinoa Bites is a perfect make-ahead appetizer. Assemble and bake them in the morning. Right before serving, reheat in the microwave and serve hot. It’s that simple!
These bites freeze great. Bake, cool, store them in an airtight container and freeze. When ready to serve, reheat and enjoy with ranch or a dipping sauce of your choice.
