OK this is a grown up recipe swap but I wanted to post my toddler recipe since it was such a success this week!
I wanted something to feed DD that was good for her, freezable (so DH can make it when I am gone at work!) and included some veggies since she is not good with eating many whole veggies yet. This was a winner and has two options! Super fast and easy and I made it in portions.
Broccoli Cheese Quinoa Bites:
- one package quinoa (I used a vegetable quinoa package for easy seasoning) cooked per package instructions
- steamed broccoli (about 2 cups), chopped fine
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 egg
Put the cooked quinoa, chopped broccoli, cheese and egg in a bowl and mix well. The put mixture into muffin tins (mine made 11 in a 12 muffin pan).
Preheat oven to 350 and bake for 20 - 30 minutes until golden brown. (mine took 23). I left three disks in the fridge and microwaved for meals, the others I stored in ziplocks by twos for DH to thaw. DD loved them!
You could also use plain quinoa, grated apple and cheese for a sweeter version.
