Quinoa Pizza Bites

Who doesn’t love pizza!?  I admit I have a weakness for it, which has made me look for alternative, healthier options; and these quinoa pizza bites are healthy, nutritious and satisfying.  They can also be vegetarian just omit the pepperoni. I am always trying to find ways to incorporate more quinoa into our diets.  This plant-based protein is a versatile food.  It can be eaten as a pasta, rice or used in baking or as a cereal to name a few. One cup packs a whopping 8g of protein, 5g of fibre.  It is a complete protein which means it has all of the essential amino acids necessary for good health. You will need:

2 cups of cooked quinoa

2 large eggs

1 cup of chopped onion

1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese

2 tsp minced garlic

1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped

1 cup chopped pepperoni ( or omit to make this a vegetarian recipe)

1/2 tsp seasoning salt

1 tsp paprika

1 tsp dried oregano

*Pizza sauce for dipping Instructions:


Preheat oven 350 degreesMix together all ingredients except the pizza sauce, in a medium bowl.Grease muffin tins, filling each cup to the top, and press down gently to compact.Bake for 15-20 minutes.Dip into the pizza sauce and enjoy!
