Quinoa Pizza Bites

Instead of a full on cheat day how about a mini cheat day? I made these quinoa pizza bites for the first time last night, I slightly tweaked the recipe of course (shown below) )to make it slightly healthier, but overall it’s a great little snack or appetizer to satisfy your carb craving. 

Ingredients:

1 cup uncooked quinoa

2 large eggs

1/2 cup chopped onion

1/2 cup fat free shredded mozzarella

1 tsp minced garlic

1 Tbs dried basil

1 tsp dried oregano

pinch

 of salt

pizza

 sauce for dipping

Directions:

1. Cook your quinoa! Boil the quinoa and 2 cups of 

water

and cover. Once boiling, reduce heat to low, and let it simmer for 15-20 minutes (until water is absorbed and quinoa is tender).

2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all of your ingredients (except the pizza sauce) in a mixing bowl until it is well mixed.

3. Lightly spray the bottom of a mini-muffin tin with olive oil spray. Using a Tablespoon, scoop - 1Tbs i

 each muffin tin.

4. Bake them for 15-20 and let cool. 

5. Serve them warm with pizza sauce to dip in!
