The whole blogging world seems obsessed with quinoa right now. There are so many different salads, cakes, and side dishes out there. Lots of people even eat it for breakfast, kind of like oatmeal. I have been experimenting with different salads and versions trying to find more ways to incorporate it into our diets as well. It is so good for you, and so versatile, you can’t help but want to eat it! I have had doing a “cake” on my list for awhile, so when I saw this recipe, I knew it was time.
I made this for lunch a couple weeks ago. It was the perfect light lunch in my opinion. I used regular muffins tins, but you could use a mini muffin tin and serve it as an appetizer. My husband suggested putting in some Italian sausage next time. I was actually going to try that last week, but with my parents here it just didn’t happen. The flavors would go really well together, and it would make for a great dinner option. I plan on making it very soon.
It may come as no surprise, but my 7 year old wouldn’t get even close to this. We did force him to try one bite, but he wasn’t a fan. I didn’t expect him to be, but had to give it a shot. Now, when I do the sausage version I will be giving it to him as his meal, and hoping the sausage is enough to make him eat it
