A gluten-free recipe for a delicious appetizer!

  • 1/2 c. quinoa, white, organic
  • 1 c. water, purified
  • 2 egg, omega-3, cage-free, organic
  • 1 green onion, fresh, organic
  • 1 clove garlic, fresh, organic
  • 1/2 c. cheese, parmesan, raw, organic
  • 3 tbs. cilantro, fresh, organic

  • 1/8 tsp. black pepper, ground, organic
  • 1/2 tsp. lemon juice, pure, organic

Cook the quinoa: combine quinoa and water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and let simmer (covered) for about 10 minutes, until all liquid has been absorbed.

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Grease a mini muffin pan with coconut oil.

Combine cooked quinoa, eggs, diced green onion, minced garlic, shredded Parmesan, chopped cilantro, almond flour, sea salt, pepper, lemon juice, and olive oil in a large bowl. Stir to mix well.

Scoop a heaping tablespoon of the mixture into each mini muffin spot.

Bake for 20 minutes. Serve hot.
