These delicious Cauliflower Cheese Quinoa Bites make an easy and healthy savoury snack


  • 1/2 head of cauliflower
  • 150g / 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • 50g / 1/2 cup grated cheese
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 2 spring onions, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • oil spray or butter to grease the tin


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C / 350F.
  2. Chop the cauliflower into small pieces and place in a food processor. Blitz until the cauliflower reaches a rice like consistency. Alternatively you can grate the cauliflower to achieve the same result.
  3. Place the cauliflower mixture in a large bowl with all the other ingredients and mix well with a spoon.
  4. Spray a little oil or rub a little butter into each hole of a 12 hole cupcake tray. Place a large spoonful of the mixture into each hole, flatten down and bake in the oven for 15 minutes.
  5. Allow the quinoa bites to cool a little and firm up before you attempt to remove them from the tray.
