Crunchy Quinoa Croutons

Crunchy and tender, these are a delightful change to bread-style croutons.


Once the cooked quinoa has cooled, mix with the egg and any seasonings you’d like. Portion mixture out( teaspoon size) into hot greased skillet, flattening slightly.

Once golden, flip and cook other side until crisp and golden. Serve warm or room temperature with your favorite salad.quinoacroutons4

  • 1 cup cooked quinoa cooled
  • 1 egg beaten
  • Salt and pepper

Suggested Flavorings

  • ¼ tsp garlic salt
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning


  • Add all ingredients to a bowl and mix until well combined. Add any flavorings as desired.
  • Heat a large skillet with some oil (adding more as needed), and place teaspoon size balls (a small cookie scoop or melon baller works great for making the perfect portion) into the hot skillet – pressing the balls down gently to flatten slightly.
  • Cook until golden on both sides.


To cook quinoa, rinse 3/4 cup of quinoa and place in a covered pot along with 2 cups of salted water. Bring to a boil, reduce then simmer about 12 minutes or until quinoa is tender. Drain and spread out onto a baking sheet to cool.
