Quinoa Meatballs

1 1/2 cups cooked Quinoa
3 tbsp onion flakes
1/2 pound lean ground beef (93%)
1/2 pound extra lean ground turkey
2 tbsp olive oil
1 egg
3 tbsp dried parsley
1-1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp ground coriander
2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
Cook Quinoa according to package directions. Mix all in bowl using hands. Roll into balls and place in greased baking pan. Bake at 350 for 20 min or until cooked through. Makes 18 meatballs. 262 calories for two These are big meatballs
I tried doing meatball sandwiches for my kids with a bit of BBQ sauce on whole wheat 100 calorie Flat Sandwich Bread. I should have just given them the meatballs plain because that's all they really wanted. But, they ate them up. Try it and let me know what you think.
