Easy White Cheddar Cauliflower Quinoa Bites Recipe

I love food, but sometimes, deciding what's for dinner is such a chore! I try to make meals that are healthier and flavorful, but they also have to be quick and easy so I can make it after work. Thank goodness for all the great recipes I find on Pinterest! With so many great recipes out there I don't have to worry about having the same old things, and it makes deciding a little more exciting.

My latest inspiration from Pinterest is a White Cheddar Cauliflower Quinoa Bite. I was able to make the quinoa ahead of time. Quinoa can be made in a rice cooker, so that makes it easier. I also cut my cauliflower on the weekend so I can use it during the week in various ways, this was one of them. The ingredients mix together quick and easy, and then just bake for 20 minutes in a mini muffin pan.  I used a tri-color quinoa, but any color will work.

Most importantly, they were DEEEE-licious! The whole family loved them, and that's what really matters!
