Garlic Bread Quinoa Bites

There’s a tent in our dining room right now. We bought a really small, cheap tent to bond with our sugar gliders. In “tent bonding”, you’re supposed to climb into the tent with your sugar glider, then let them climb around in a safe environment and explore the tent and climb all over you to get more comfortable with your presence. Garlic Bread Quinoa Bites Recipe : So Very Blessed Dale & I’s first tent bonding session was super productive. By the end of the two-hour session, he was hopping off of the tent walls and onto my hands and climbing all over me without fear. The next session, he curled up on my neck, underneath my ponytail, and promptly fell asleep. Garlic Bread Quinoa Bites Recipe : So Very Blessed Since that night, the tent has gone unused, but has remained in the middle of our dining room, half blocking the entrance to the laundry room, rendering half of the dining table useless, and preventing us from being able to fully open the door to the garage. You’d think all of those things would motivate me to break down and put away the tent. Nope. Instead, I made quinoa bites. Garlic Bread Quinoa Bites Recipe : So Very Blessed Don’t be fooled. The only bread these quinoa bites contain is the bit of Panko breadcrumbs that help hold these babies together. But…I didn’t know what else to name them. Garlic Bread Quinoa Bites Recipe : So Very Blessed I mean, it’s garlic bread. Without the bread. Obviously. Each bite is packed with garlic, creamy Parmesan cheese, herbs, and essential amino acids. Those are important, ya know. I ate them plain, but they would be fantastic dipped into a marinara sauce. You can also kick them up a notch by using fresh herbs, but I don’t always keep those around and dried herbs still pack a powerful flavor punch, making them an easy, quick to whip up weeknight meal/appetizer/snack. Garlic Bread Quinoa Bites Recipe : So Very Blessed So, I’m running out of reasons to avoid taking the tent down now. Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

Interesting! I haven't eaten quinoa sweet yet, just savory. I definitely need to try it!

I've heard of people using nutritional yeast instead of the cheese. I'm not sure how they would taste without cheese altogether! Sorry!

I saw on Facebook that you've already looked it up, but quite simply, they're kind of like a little marsupial flying squirrel!

I'm not vegan myself, so I'm not an expert, but some of my readers have said they've used chia seeds and water for the egg! Thank you!

Any suggestions on what you could use instead of eggs to make them vegan? They sound so yummy!
