Today, I am sharing a delicious meatball with a twist. I have never been a fan of ground beef, so… I always make meatballs with turkey, pork or chicken…and sometimes a mix of all three. Since turkey and chicken tends to be fairly bland, I like to add various ingredients to create a tasty meatball. How about an Asian inspired chicken quinoa meatball? I like this recipe so much that these meatballs were my lunch AND dinner yesterday! 🙂
Today’s meatball is infused with Asian flavors with hints of ginger, soy sauce and sesame oil. Instead of breadcrumbs, cooked quinoa adds a welcomed texture and a fiber, magnesium and protein boost.
Quinoa takes very little time to cook–but if you want to skimp on prep time then purchase a plain pre-cooked quinoa. (Trader Joe’s carries this in the freezer section.)
