For being such a tiny little grain, quinoa really packs a nutritional punch. It contains all nine of the amino acids essential to the human body, making it a complete protein. It is fiber-dense, which helps promote bowel health, prevent heart disease, lower cholesterol, and keeps you feeling full longer. Quinoa is also a good source of iron, magnesium and manganese.
These little bites are simple to prepare. Serve them in place of fries the next time veggie burgers are on your menu. They make a great side dish, but can also be the main attraction, with steamed or grilled vegetables on the side.
