sorry i haven’t been posting as regularly as i have in the past. things have been busy – work has been full of orientation for our new students and outside of work chris and i have been busy wedding planning and getting ready to move (just down the street). so it’s left little time to write blog posts. but don’t worry, i haven’t forgotten about you and i hope to get back to posting more often.
until then, please enjoy these quinoa pizza bites. remember a while back i made buffalo chicken quinoa bites? well these are very similar to those except with the wonderful flavors of pizza instead of buffalo chicken.
there are a ton of different herbs and spices in these little bites plus a bit of mozzarella cheese and turkey pepperoni which make them incredibly flavorful. i also dipped the bites in some marinara sauce and all together they definitely had all the flavors of pepperoni pizza.
but the great thing is these quinoa pizza bites are much more healthy than regular pizza – you get all of the wonderful nutritional benefits of quinoa like fiber and protein but they just taste like pepperoni pizza! awesome!
to start just put everything in a medium bowl…
then mix it all together.
now scoop a bit of the mixture into each cup of a mini muffin tin. press down on each one so that it’s nicely packed in.
bake the quinoa pizza bites for 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees F.
let them cool for a little bit to allow the bites to set. this makes it a bit easier to get out of the muffin tin. serve the quinoa bites warm with some marinara sauce.
