Quinoa Pizza Bites


Ingredients

  • 1 cup cooked and cooled quinoa (You can make this part days in advance or use leftover quinoa from dinner)
  • 2 cups cooked and cooled cauliflower florets, pureed (You will need about half a head of cauliflower. I steamed mine for 15 minutes while my quinoa was cooking. You can make this part days in advance or use leftover cauliflower from dinner)
  • 1 egg (If you are egg free, I think a flax egg or gelatin egg would work for the binding)
  • 1/4 cup white rice flour
  • 2 TB coconut flour
  • 2 TB pizza sauce
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp Italian seasoning
