I had one cup of leftover cooked quinoa and thought I would do a little experimenting. These are very cheesy and moreish, Harry gobbled three of them straight out of the oven, so I’d say a winner. Perfect for a snack on the run or as something tasty in lunch boxes.
They are best eaten fresh but will keep for a day or two and can be frozen separately.
