The Ultimate Vegetarian Meatballs

vegmeat

Go veg on your meatballs with this quinoa and fresh vegetable-based version, which is dense, spicy and filling. You don’t need meat to get that “meaty” texture and deep taste and you do your body a huge favor by opting for the occasional vegetarian swap. I enjoyed these vegetarian meatballs in a pasta, but feel free to use them in sandwiches, wraps, salads and casseroles. Enjoy!

Glow for the grain:

Quinoa: is a protein powerhouse (one cup has 9 grams), containing all  of the essential amino acids and is thus a complete protein, is rich in fiber and digests slowly as to provide a feeling of fullness, acts an an internal cleanser and helps keep you “regular”, contributes to liver health with it vitamin B and folate content, builds bones with his good calcium content, and offer 15 percent of the U.S. recommended daily allowance of iron in just one cup, helping to deliver oxygen to the blood and boosting energy and brain power.
