what you'll need
  

  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 1 cup broccoli finely chopped, firmly packed
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese grated
  • 2 green onions sliced
  • 2 large eggs lightly beaten
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 Tbsp Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper

let's do it
 

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees then line a baking sheet with parchment paper and coat lightly with cooking spray.
  • Add cooked quinoa, chopped broccoli, cheddar cheese and green onion to a large mixing bowl then toss until combined.
  • Mix in eggs, garlic powder, Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper until completely combined.
  • Scoop onto prepared baking sheet using a small scoop or tablespoon. Compress mixture into the spoon (or scoop) as much as possible, but keep in mind it’s not necessary for the mixture to cook in a spherical shape. The egg and cheese will bind the bites together after they are baked.
  • Bake 20–25 minutes or until lightly browned on the outside. Remove from oven, let rest for 5 minutes before serving.

One Last Thing

If you’re looking to save time, simply press the mixture into a well-greased 9" square casserole dish then bake until set and cut. You don’t have to roll them into balls.
