Little people like me need lots of protein. And this tasty little appetizer idea provides a good and tasty dose with quinoa, beans and peanut butter. I adore little bites, and these little savory balls can be served as a light meal too, as they are quite filling.
But these baked quinoa balls have more than just protein. Combined with sun-dried tomatoes, jalapeño, tamari, ground ginger and coconut milk, they have a wonderful rich and deep Thai-style flavor, and the zesty peanut butter dipping sauce with lime, tamari, coconut milk and toasted sesame oil is just heavenly. You won’t be thinking about how healthy these are!
