These Quinoa Crust Cheesy Breadsticks are an amazing gluten-free healthy substitute for garlic bread without flour - easy to prep & a real crowd pleaser!
I’m obsessed with quinoa. It’s naturally gluten-free, it’s packed with protein and it has twice as much fiber as most other grains! See why I’m so keen to quinoa?! I love cooking a big batch of quinoa every week and just tossing it in salads, eating it along with chicken instead of rice, etc. And sometimes if I have some leftover, I just turn them into breadsticks like these Quinoa Crust Cheesy Breadsticks.
If you have the quinoa already cooked, all you need to do is whisk two eggs with olive oil, Italian seasoning (or seasoning of your choice), along with onion powder, garlic powder and baking powder. The onion powder and garlic powder give it that savory taste of breadsticks and the baking powder helps it fluff up.
Then you’ll just add the cooked quinoa and cheese and mix it all up really well. You can shape it however you’d like – round, oval, or even individual garlic bread style. Once the quinoa crust cooks in the oven and becomes golden and crisp, you can really top it however you’d like…cheese, pizza sauce, chicken and veggies…whatever your heart’s desire!
This Quinoa Crust Cheesy Breadsticks makes a batch big enough for a party of 8 if everyone has a couple pieces. It’s surprisingly a real crowd pleaser and no one will believe it’s made with quinoa!
