Kid food: Veggie Quinoa Bites


We continue to have success with spherical foods! These quinoa bites are pumpkin-flavoured and delicious. May you have success with them too.


Veggie Quinoa Bites


  • 2 cups cooked quinoa, cooled
  • 1 cup mashed pumpkin
  • 1 Small zucchini, grated
  • 1 Small carrot, grated
  • 2 tablespoons corn kernels
  • 1/4 cup wholemeal flour
  • 1 Large egg


Step 1
Mix all ingredients together. Once combined, shape into bite-size balls with your hands. The mixture might be wet and sticky owing to the pumpkin, but they will firm up in the oven.
Step 2
Bake at 200C for 30-45 minutes, until cooked through and starting to turn golden. Can also be pan-fried, but will lose the ball-ness (heheh) and be more of a little fritter. Still good!

    I love this recipe! My eleven month old recently started enjoying anything round and baked as well! So far its been a lot of quinoa muffins and veggie balls. I believe this is right up her alley!

    Love spherical food – it just tastes better:) And so cute – which is more important when you’re trying to get small hands to move it from the plate to the mouth xo

      Hi Sally! I’ve never frozen them so unfortunately I really can’t say. I have a feeling they would probably be too soft once thawed, as they’re quite soft to start with. Sorry I couldn’t be more helpful!
