Bust out your cape because these little Quinoa Omelette Bites are a super breakfast packed with super foods.
That's right, these Quinoa Omelette Bites are protein-filled goodness to start your morning. And trust me, I need all the help I can get.
To me quinoa is the most underrated super food. It's a grain high in protein, fiber, and packed with vitamins. Oh and gluten free -- major bonus.
If you start your day with a carb-loaded breakfast, it may last you for a while, but in an hour or two you'll be scrounging for a snack. The key is a high protein breakfast to sustain you longer.
You wouldn't guess that these little bites are packed, and I mean packed, with protein and vitamins. They are made with cooked quinoa, spinach (another super food), cheese, and garlic.
Here's how quickly they come together:
First, cook your quinoa. Easy as cooking rice!
Add a sprinkle of cheese to the warm quinoa and mix it together.
Next, add some egg whites, spinach (talk about good for you!), and garlic.
Scoop into a mini muffin tin all the way to the top. I like to use a cookie scoop for easy scooping.
Using a cookie scoop also makes them all uniform in size.
Bake for 20 minutes. Mmm. They look so good!
I love how the edges of the quinoa bites start to get all crispy. Try these Quinoa Omelette Bites for a super breakfast to get your day started right.
