Cheesy Quinoa-Garbanzo Veggie Cups

Oh these were tasty delights. Garbanzo beans and quinoa are two of my favorite foods. When I saw this recipe at The Peaceful Kitchen I had to try it. In addition to the beans and quinoa there is also grated zucchini, finely chopped scallions and red bell pepper and a wide assortment of spices and flavors. It is baked in muffin tins so you end up with a bunch of adorable "loaves." I found myself wishing I had one of those "muffin top" pans to bake them in – it would make some awesome veggie burgers. The recipe also has a link for the "cheesy sauce" which was actually quite tasty. A final note – the baking directions were for 20 minutes which I thought were not long enough. I baked them for 30 minutes and next time might bake them for even 5 minutes longer.

  1. Those do indeed sound good. I have some hamburger "slider" pans I've never used -- think they would make good sliders?
