These quinoa bites have turned out to be the new mini-comfort slash healthy food I’m craving these days. I’ve got a thing for appetizers. And the mini-er they get, the cuter they look and the less guilty I feel for the never ending indulgence. 🙂

But with this simple recipe for crispy quinoa bites, I’m combining my love for mini version of food with a healthier way of cooking and a new ingredient that I’ve never really cooked with before!

The Verdict – Well, quinoa is an exotic ingredient in India. Unlike a potato, it does not  just blend into the mixture adopting whatever flavor you give it. Quinoa lends its own flavors to whatever you are cooking. And to truly like and appreciate quinoa, it is necessary to nail the texture. If you’ve never tasted quinoa before, you might have to get used to the nuttier flavor it provides. And these quinoa bites can definitely be the first thing you try with quinoa. They’re easy to make, simplicity of flavors, healthy and are probably an example of the best use of this ingredient. (more…)
