Cheesy Quinoa Cups

Inspiration:
Dunkley, originally from IowaGirlEats

Ingredients:
  • 2 cups cooked quinoa (about 3/4 cup uncooked)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 cup shredded or diced vegetables (I've used steamed broccoli and sauteed spinach)
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (I used sharp cheddar)
  • 1/2 cup diced meat or additional vegetables (I used ham)
  • 1/4 cup parsley, chopped (omitted)
  • 2 Tablespoons parmesan cheese
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • salt & pepper


Instructions:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
  2. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix to combine. 
  3. Liberally spray a mini muffin tin with non-stick spray and spoon mixture to the top of each cup. 
  4. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the edges of the cups are golden brown. 
  5. Let cool for at least 5 minutes before removing from the mini muffin tin.


Notes:
I had some quinoa left over after making a few batches of Quinoa with Black Beans and Cilantro for a neighborhood party. Luckily, my friend Sarah had just posted Cheesy Quinoa Cups on her blog. I dug through my refrigerator and had all the ingredients except parsley on hand. Voila! A delicious, portable snack.

Next time I make these, I may try using shredded Swiss (I love ham, spinach, and Swiss cheese together), or add some spices or herbs. Really any flavor combination should work!

(Yes, we have a new little guy in our life. He's 11 months old, and we'll blame the blog hiatus on him. Luckily, he loves to eat-- anything and everything. I'll include him as a rater from now on.)

Hey, it was great to see this post pop into my reader (too bad I don't check the "Cooking" category very often). Congrats on your little guy! I've been meaning to try this recipe ever since Sarah posted it...
