This lovely recipe was found by my dear friend and ex-sous chef from my days at Azna Gluten Free! He was a cranky man, and hated that I made him do gluten-free and vegan food and baked goods all day every day.  But he loved me and gracefully accepted the challenge. Fast forward 13 years and he’s all grown up and a head chef and making GF things on his own!

Delicious gluten-free muffins that pair well with a side of asparagus and 100% grass-fed beef if you wish.


  • 1 cup of uncooked quinoa
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup of red onions, finely chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped
  • ⅓ cup tomatoes, diced
  • ½ tsp. sea salt
  • ½ tsp. freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 2 chives, finely chopped, for garnish
  • 2 cups salsa, for serving


  1. Cook quinoa according to package directions. Prepare muffin pan with nonstick baking spray.
  2. Preheat over to 350 degrees F.
  3. In a large bowl, combined cooked quinoa with remaining ingredients, except chives and salsa; mix well to combine.
  4. Transfer quinoa mixture to prepared muffin pan. Using a tablespoon, fill each muffin cup to the top, then using a spatula, press down on the mixture to create a flat surface.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven; set aside to cool for 15 minutes.

This looks like an excellent recipe Brian; I can’t wait to taste them!
