Quinoa is becoming as much as a staple as potatoes and pasta is households around the world now. 

Quinoa is a gluten-free seed forged in South America called ‘the mother grain’ by the Inca. Used a substitute for rice and other grains. It’s a whole grain carbohydrate and a whole protein (meaning it contains all nine essential amino acids). 

These cheesy veggie quinoa bites are wonderfully easy to prepare. They make perfect finger foods.
