When I gave up being a vegan & returned to eating meat once more, I stopped eating quinoa & instead, started a love affair with couscous. However, whilst being entirely delicious & quick to cook, couscous, essentially being from the pasta family, makes me bloat & isn't particularly of any nutritional benefit.
Thus, upon returning to my vegan ways, I also returned to quinoa. It had been so long since I'd had it, I'd forgotten how good it was & how versatile. Great in salads, cakes & even...
Mushroom & Quinoa Vegan Meatballs
This great recipe by 84th&3rd, was really easy to follow & made delicious, flavoursome meatballs. Kate & I made them together, slightly adjusting the ingredients to what we had to hand, such as using spinach instead of kale & served them with the tomato sauce & a plate full of spaghetti.
Quinoa is a complete protein & like couscous, it soaks up the water you cook it in, which means that you fill up on very little. So even a couple of these little balls is enough per person.
