Comfort Food

I love that it has reached 82 degrees twice this week, but really??  It’s almost November.  I’m ready for the cold {which I guess I better be since it’s getting down to 30 something this weekend}. 

So, I’m willing it here with some yummy cold weather, comfort food.  Check out these quick and easy {and super yummy!} recipes.

 Tomato Basil Soup with Cheesy Quinoa Bites

Tomato Basil Soup

·         4 ounces mascarpone cheese
·         4 tablespoons pesto
 Heat soup and add cheese and pesto until melted.
Cheesy Quinoa Bites {as adapted from Iowa Girl Eats}

  • 2 cups cooked quinoa (about 3/4 cup uncooked)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 Tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Add all ingredients to a large bowl and mix to combine. Liberally spray a mini muffin tin with non-stick spray and spoon mixture to the top of each cup. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the edges of the cups are golden brown. Let cool for at least 5 minutes in the tin before eating.
