SRIRACHA QUINOA BITES
So quick and easy, and fairly healthy, if you don’t mind the cheese. These come together quickly, especially if you keep cooked quinoa on hand (it freezes beautifully). Sriracha addicts may want to up the sriracha to 2 tablespoons.
2 cups cooked quinoa (how to cook quinoa)
3/4 cup Gruyere cheese, grated
2 eggs, beaten
2 green onions, thinly sliced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped
1 tablespoon honey
1 1/2 tablespoons sriracha
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup breadcrumbs (whole wheat or white)
Preheat oven to 350°F
Oil the cups of two mini 12 count muffin pans. Set aside.
Stir all of the ingredients together in a large bowl. The mixture should be sticky and cling to a spoon. (Add more breadcrumbs if it’s too loose.)
Spoon the mixture into one cup. Press down firmly with your fingers. Add more, if necessary, to fill even with the top. Press firmly again. Continue filling the cups in this manner. You should be able to fill 18 to 20 of the cups.
Bake for 15-20 minutes, rotating the pans halfway through. Keep an eye on the edges – if they brown, go ahead and remove the pans from the oven.
Allow to cool for 5 minutes, then turn out on a cooling rack. Serve immediately.
