In a large bowl, combine cooked quinoa with remaining ingredients, except chives and salsa; mix well to combine.

Transfer quinoa mixture to prepared muffin pan. Using a tablespoon, fill each muffin cup to the top, then using a spatula, press down on the mixture to create a flat surface.

Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven; set aside to cool for 15 minutes. Using a teaspoon, gently remove quinoa muffins from the muffin cups.

Transfer to a serving platter; serve with a sprinkle of fresh chives and a side of salsa for dipping.

Enjoy!

I have a question:

The directions state the following: "Transfer quinoa and rice mixture to prepared muffin pan".

What rice? There is no rice listed in the ingredients.

These quinoa muffins contain cheese, yet it is stated that they are 'Dairy-Free'. Am I missing something? I thought that cheese was a dairy product.

No, they do make a soy cheese. I found it at Wal-Mart with the egg roll wrappers.

Soy products are extremely dangerous because of the estrogen effects, etc. The only way to eat soy safely is to ferment it: soy sauce. Dr. Weston Price was a leading authority on soy and other foods. Soy is especially dangerous to infants yet it is in all formulas.

Sorry, but "mozzarella" means mozzarella. You cannot have dairy free "mozzarella". If it tastes like mozzarella and is not mozzarella, you are probably getting fake food. Read ingredients on packages.

Thank you for your recipe. I am saying "finally... a savory rather than a breakfast quinoa muffin!"

These look good and I'm anxious to try them. Is this recipe for large muffins? (Just wondering what type of muffin pan I should use.)

I've made these at least three times. They are great with chili, and we also have them as a grain with steamed vegetables and a soup. I usually add more diced tomatoes and also put a piece of sweet pepper on top.

Daiya and other companies make dairy free mozzarella or you can make your own. Let your index finger do the Googling for you!

Yes the crumpets are excellent. I have them quite often in the winter. Look and taste is excellent. They're probably not as chewy as the gluten ones but that's not really an issue as they are chewy in comparison to what I eat now.

Wow! Didn't realise that was a possibilty! I've had the little biscuits they make, they're really nice and the only danger is finishing the entire bag at a sitting! The weird thing is that I wasn't that fussed about panettones until I couldn't have them any more, now I really want one The Be...

If you are still worried you can also ask that the dry ingredients be mixed/poured outside (eg. on a deck, balcony etc.) and only be brought inside once combined with the wet ingredients. I believe someone else on the board once posted this as a suggestion, and I took it up to avoid roommate muti...

I am more stressed about what sales will be out on cyber Monday and black Friday then the actual thanksgiving holidays lol. Cooking is just cooking, I do it daily, just doing more and some special dishes. NOW once a year sales on products I use daily like supplements, spices, foods, flours, etc.....
