Switch up pizza night with these scrumptious quinoa pizza muffins. These protein-packed morsels, perfect for little hands to grab, are stuffed with mozzarella cheese, Parmesan, prosciutto, green olives, and marinara sauce…and taste just like pizza!
This easy to make, fun finger food can be served to babies (10+ months) and toddlers, or as an interesting, gluten-free appetizer at your next dinner party.
The recipe for these muffins is simple-combine cooked quinoa with toppings of choice, such as pineapple and ham, pepperoni and mushrooms, cherry tomatoes and basil, or simply loaded with a variety of cheeses, and bake.
Not only do my kids love the taste of these, they enjoy making them with me. I’m all for giving children the opportunity to get in the kitchen and get their hands dirty. It helps develop fine and gross motor skills, as well as encourage creativity and ownership. The likelihood that children will eat new foods usually increases when they help prepare them.
Simple and flavourful recipes such as this one, are my favourites to make, since I get to prepare dinner and spend quality time with the kids at the same time!
