Parmesan Quinoa Bites

(adapted from this recipe)

2 1/2 cups of cooked quinoa (instead of preparing quinoa with water like the package suggests, use chicken broth. so much tastier!)
3 large eggs
3 stalks of green onion, sliced thin
1 cup grated carrots
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/3 cup fresh parsley, chopped
3/4 cup parmesan cheese, plus extra to sprinkle on top
3 Tbsp rice flour (or regular flour if youíre not GF)
1/4 tsp salt (more if you use water to make your quinoa. otherwise, the chicken broth adds enough salt.)
1/4 tsp pepper


Preheat oven to 350 (fahrenheit).

Combine all of your ingredients in a large bowl (except for the extra parmesan for the top of each bite) and mix well. Spray your muffin tins entirely with cooking spray (donít skimp on the spray or your bites will stick). Scoop out enough mixture to fill your standard muffin tins 3/4 full. Press down firmly with your fingers or the back of a spoon. Sprinkle more parmesan cheese on top of each muffin tin portion. Bake in over for 20-30 minutes. Ready when slightly browned on top and a fairly browned crust on bottom and sides has formed. (The charm of these bites is the nice and crispy, almost chewy, crust around all the edges. The cheese melts and bakes into the sidesÖ.and oh my, itís heavenly. So donít remove too earlyÖ..but you donít want them burnt and dried out either. So watch them carefully!)

Pop out of muffin tins and allow to cool slightly. Dip bites into your favorite dressing and enjoy!
