Quinoa Zucchini Clusters

Quinoa Zucchini Clusters

Corin grew up cooking delicious multi-course meals with her mother. These days, although Corin still loves to cook and often entertain visitors, she tries to keep things a bit simpler and healthier.

These clusters are always popular; they’re easy to make and they feed a crowd. Best of all, three of these quinoa clusters contain fewer than 100 calories. Serve them as a savoury appetizer with a glass of wine, and then tuck any leftovers into your lunch bag for a snack the next day.

Makes 40 clusters

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup (60 mL) water
  • 2 Tbsp (28 g) Skinny B cereal
  • 2 cups (475 mL) cooked quinoa (about ¾ cup/180 mL uncooked)
  • 1 cup (250 mL) shredded zucchini
  • 1 Tbsp (15 mL) chopped green onions, white part only
  • 1 pkg (5.2 oz/150 g) Boursin cheese or other soft cheese
  • 2 large eggs
  • Salt to taste
  • Chives, for garnish

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F (175C). Grease two 24-cup mini-muffin tins.
  2. Pour the water into a bowl, stir in the Skinny B cereal and let sit for 5 minutes.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the quinoa, zucchini, and green onions until well mixed. Add the cheese, using a spoon to break it up and work it into the other ingredients.
  4. Using a whisk, mix the eggs into the soaked cereal until well combined. Pour into the quinoa mixture and stir until evenly combined. Season with salt to taste.
  5. Drop 1 Tbsp (15 mL) of batter into each cup of a mini-muffin tin and bake for 12 to 14 minutes, or until the edges begin to brown.
  6. Allow to cool in the tins for 5 minutes before unmolding. Serve warm, topped with a snipped chive. Leftovers will keep refrigerated in an airtight container for several days.
