I have made these several times now. They are a great appetizer for a party, an easy lunch to take on a long hike and for some game-day snack food.
They’re always a hit and I never mind making them because they’re so simple to throw together.
- 2 cups cooked quinoa
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup feta cheese
- 2 cups fresh spinach
- 1 clove fresh garlic, grated
- Salt and Italian seasonings, to taste
Sautee spinach and grated garlic for about 5-7 minutes over medium heat. Set aside to cool.
Drain spinach and chop into small pieces. Set aside.
Whisk 2 eggs in a large mixing bowl then add quinoa, feta cheese, spinach and spices. Stir everything together and roll into balls (like you would cookie dough).
Place on a baking stone (or cookie sheet) and cook for 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees. Quinoa bites should be somewhat firm to the touch on top when you take them out of the oven.
Let cool for about 5 minutes and then dip in marinara sauce.
