Jalapeno Quinoa Bites

Cheesey Quinoa Quiche Bites

Who would have thought a recipe donning two Q's could be so tasty and so easy. Plus, lets talk about their versatility. What's great is as long as you have the quinoa, eggs, and cheese as a base, you can throw in almost anything. Tomatoes, shredded carrots or zucchini, feta, basil. I love making these little guys then putting them in a ziploc baggie and freezing them for morning emergencies when I just don't have time to make anything. Perfect little protein and fiber packed bites.

Yes. I heart these little bites :)
Now, here is how to make them.

Jalapeno Quinoa Bites

1 cup cooked quinoa
1 egg
1 egg white
1 1/2 tablespoons diced jalapenos
1/2 cup shredded colby jack cheese
1 tablespoon parmesan cheese
dash of salt

Lightly grease a mini muffin tin. Blend all ingredients together well and spoon roughly a tablespoon in each mini muffin cup. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.

*can be frozen then microwaved at 25-30 seconds each to satiate major munchie cravings*
