Gluten free Crispy Quinoa Bites


A few weeks ago I made these yummy gluten free crispy quinoa bites (from gluten-free and vegetarian). I have been meaning to stay updated on my blog but my life has been SO busy! No excuse! So here is the recipe, I hope you all enjoy!


1/2 cup uncooked quinoa

1/2 cup uncooked black rice

2 large eggs

1 cup chopped green onions

1 cup mozzarella cheese

3 garlic cloves, minced

1/2 cup fresh basil, finely chopped

1/3 cup grape tomatoes, diced

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/2 tsp ground pepper

1 tsp chili powder

2 cups pasta sauce for serving

1. Cook quinoa and rice according to package directions. Prepare muffin pan with nonstick baking spray.

2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

3. In a large bowl, combine cooked quinoa and rice with remaining ingredients, except pasta sauce; mix well to combine. Transfer quinoa and rice mixture to prepared muffin pan. Using a Tbsp, fill each muffin cup to the top, then using a spatula, press down on the mixture to create a flat surface.

4. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven; set aside to cool for 15 minutes. Using a tsp, gently remove rice and quinoa snacks from the muffin cups.

5. Transfer to a serving platter; serve with pasta sauce for dipping.
