Description

Quinoa is so healthy for you! A great breakfast for you and the kiddos to start the day right.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Cooked Quinoa
  • 1 cup Shredded Carrot Or Zucchini
  • 2 whole Large Eggs
  • 2 whole Green Onions, Sliced Thin
  • 3 cloves Garlic, Pressed
  • 2 Tablespoons Fresh Cilantro Or Parsley, Snipped
  • ½ cups Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • ½ cups Finely Diced Ham
  • 2 Tablespoons Flour, I Like White Wheat
  • Generous Amounts Salt And Pepper

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Make quinoa according to package directions.

Mix together cooked quinoa, shredded carrot or zucchini, eggs, green onion, garlic, cilantro or parsley if using, cheese, ham, flour, salt and pepper. Divide mixture between mini muffin tins, filling to the top (about 1 heaping tablespoon each). If not using fresh cilantro or parsley, sprinkle a little bit of dried parsley on the top of each mini muffin cup.

Bake for 15-20 minutes. Serve warm with salsa dip or ranch dressing for a hearty breakfast!

Note: I think next time I will top each cup with a little bit of Colby Jack cheese to make them cheesier. Mmm!

I am looking forward to trying these. I am a protein girl for breakfast. I figure these at 220 caloires for 6 pieces, with 15 grams of protein and 3 of fiber. My kind of breakfast! Thanks!

Very tasty little recipe. I think you could take the basic recipe/idea and use your favorite add-ins to make it your own. Since I have celiac disease, I left out the flour. (I know I could have used GF flour, but whatever, I just left it out.) When hot from the oven (without flour) they were easily crumbled – still very tasty. Cold for breakfast the next morning the bites were firmer and still very tasty.
