As the nights get darker and the weather starts to cool off, I'm drawn to making food that's hearty, filling and delicious. I also want something that can be kept in the fridge or freezer, eaten as a snack or as part of a meal. Asking too much? Not with these cauliflower and quinoa bites.
These bites are simple, delicious and perfect on their own, with a salad or even work well as vegetarian 'meatballs' with pasta.
