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!
Almond or other nut butters can be used instead of the peanut butter if desired.
