Vegan Veggie Bites

I raised my first child vegan until he was nearly 4 years old!  So I had to master the craft of baking and cooking without dairy!  While scrolling on Instagram, I saw a really yummy recipe that motivated me to do a take on Quinoa Broccoli bites (without the cheese or eggs), which included a vegan cheese and chia seeds to replace the eggs.

Recipe:

  • 2/3 cup chopped peppers
  • 1 cup chopped spinach
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • 2 TB of chia seeds (let sit in 2.5 TB of water for a few minutes to gel- this is your binder)
  • 2 tsp sesame seeds
  • 1 tsp ground mustard
  • 1 cup shredded Earth's Island vegan cheese

Hand mix all together

Bake for 25 minutes at 350 degrees. #vegancheese #earthisland

Note* These come out a little less like a muffin, more like tiny bites (they are delicate when you remove them so use a small spoon and be careful)
