Broccoli Cheese Quinoa Bites Recipe : So Very Blessed
It has been the object of my procrastination for half of January, but I have finally checked the box and am so glad I did!  In the midst of some fast food runs and a few too many desserts, we were in dire need of some vegetables and whole grains and this was the perfect vehicle for both of them.

These little things are healthy, easy to throw together, and incorporate a lot of broccoli in a way that’s much more appealing than straight veggies (to us!).

Anything I can use instead of eggs? My son is allergic


Saturday 26th of September 2015

Hi, Megan! I've never used any egg substitutes in any of my quinoa bites, but this website has some egg substitution ideas. The egg is used as a binder in this recipe, so it looks like the flax seed and water may be the best fit on the list. Good luck and let me know how it works for you! I'm sure there are others out there with egg allergies that would love to have a substitution that works!

How do you store and reheat them?


Wednesday 1st of April 2015

Hi Sarah! I keep leftovers in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to a week, usually a square glass Pyrex dish. Sometimes I reheat them in my toaster oven (at 350 until warmed through), sometimes I microwave them, and sometimes I just eat them cold. I hope that helps!
