I am still a little new to quinoa so I am still trying to figure out how best we like it prepared. D LOVED this "quinoa tots". They were cheesy and yummy and packed with good for you stuff!
Here are the ingredients:
4 tbs of ground flax
4 tbs of water (mix with flax and let it sit while you do the rest)
1 cup of quinoa
2 cups of water (or chicken stock)
2 tbs of whole wheat flour
2 tbs of chopped basil
1/4 cup of chopped walnuts
1/2 cup (ok maybe more) of grated pecorino romano cheese - divided
1 tbs of onion powder
1 tbs of garlic powder
1 tbs of olive oil
sea salt to taste
Prepare quinoa according to instructions (usually a 1 to 2 ratio). When the quinoa is finished mix the rest of the ingredients in a mixing bowl (set aside a bit of the cheese to top each bite).
Put the mixture in a 24 cup, greased, muffin tin and bake for 30 minutes (or until the tops are getting a little brown/the quinoa bites are firm).
If you are in our house... top with even more cheese and enjoy!
