Quinoa Meatballs                                                                                                                                              

 This is a recipe that I made by accident one day.

 Basic Recipe:                                                                                                                                                                     

½ part quinoa
½  part grass fed ground beef
Salt to taste
1 small chopped onion

*Optional; add lots of herbs and garlic for Italian style.

You can add spices and whatever else you like.

 Instructions:

Mix all in a bowl, roll into balls and cook (I did mine in a tomato sauce).

These cook fast about 20 minutes or longer if needed.  They should be firm. Make sure they are firm when rolling, if not, soak a little bit more quinoa in hot water for a few minutes, rinse well, then add to mixture.

NOTE:

*Quinoa should be soaked overnight then rinsed very well in a few changes of water the next day before use to get rid of the copper taste and help the digestion process while neutralizing the phytic acid.
 
The insides of the squash can be used to make breakfast fritters or squash hummus; another recipe to try with quinoa is  stuffed quinoa squash.
