These tasty, vegetarian protein balls make the perfect lunchtime snack. They are bite sized and fit easily into a lunch box, or picnic basket. To serve, just add a little mayonnaise and/or salad with dressing and enjoy. I used tri-color quinoa for this recipe, but you could also use plain quinoa - it is available from major supermarkets in the health food section.

Made this recipe but was too moist to make into balls. Any suggestions? Made it into a baking dish and the taste is great. Would like to know how to get texture right to make into balls. Thanks Fel
When I make these, they are slightly moist but sufficient to form into balls - if your mixture was too moist, maybe there was too much water used to boil the quinoa? Also, try waiting until the quinoa completely cools off before forming into balls. Good luck.
