broccoli quinoa bites

bad pictures ahead.
but this recipe is so, so good and such a hit with my boys that i'm really just posting for myself.
they are fast, easy, and completely healthy!
and they freeze like a breeze and are perfect for lunchboxes or a quick lunch with a fried egg on top!
they are also great cold, room temp, or warmed up!
you only need a few ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry and fridge!
go get started!!

Broccoli Quinoa Bites
Makes about 2- 2 1/2 dozen muffins
2 heads broccoli, roughly chopped
1 onion, roughly chopped
1 cup quinoa, rinsed and cooked
1 cup shredded white (or of choice) cheddar plus about a cup more for sprinkling on top
2 eggs

Preheat oven to 375*. Spray or butter 2-3 12 count muffin tins. Set aside.
In a food processor, combine broccoli and onion and pulse until finely chopped.  Remove to large mixing bowl. Add cooked and cooled quinoa, cheddar, and eggs and stir until combined. Press into prepared muffins tins and top with remaining cheddar. Bake at 375* for 20 minutes. Let cool and then remove. Serve warm or cool completely and freeze individually for up to a month. Enjoy!
