Spicy Red Quinoa Pesto Bites

These bites are AMAZING. They are super tasty and fulfilling.

I used the recipe on the link below, but I changed it a bit so I thought I'd better describe it here not to forget what I did (but you can check the original and follow it too, of course).

½ cup cooked red quinoa
1 cup mix of fresh basil and parsley
¼ cup red onion
¼ cup lupin flour
6 TBS tiny pine nuts
½ cup Nutritional Yeast
¼ to ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 egg
½ teaspoon sea salt
2 small garlic cloves
6 tablespoons marinated sun-dried tomatoes, drained + 1 tablespoon sun-dried tomato oil

Process this until smooth: basil, parsley, sun-dried tomatoes (and oil), pine nuts, lupin flour, onion, Nutritional Yeast, garlic, cayenne, egg and salt.

Pour mix into a big bowl, add quinoa and roll balls. Put them on a greased pan or parchment paper. Drizzle some olive oil over them and bake in preheated oven at 180°C for 20 min (flipping them after 10 min).
