Savory Quinoa Muffins (GF)
I love all of the healthier, gluten-free muffins... especially these savory ones made with quinoa! These are perfect for any meal or snack!
1 cup uncooked quinoa
2 large eggs
1 cup red onions, finely chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped
1/3 cup tomatoes, diced
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1/2 tsp. freshly ground pepper
1 tsp. chili powder
2 chives, finely chopped, for garnish
2 cups salsa, for serving
Instructions: Cook quinoa according to package directions. Prepare muffin pan with nonstick baking spray.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine cooked quinoa with remaining ingredients, except chives and salsa; mix well to combine.
Transfer quinoa mixture to prepared muffin pan. Using a tablespoon, fill each muffin cup to the top, then using a spatula, press down on the mixture to create a flat surface.
Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven; set aside to cool for 15 minutes.
Using a teaspoon, gently remove quinoa muffins from the muffin cups.
Transfer to a serving platter; serve with a sprinkle of fresh chives and a side of salsa for dipping.
