Quinoa is such a fab grain. I love how versatile it is in so many recipes. These little apple and cheese quinoa balls are great for the whole family. My little girl enjoys these and they are great cold. I often add them to my son’s lunch box, who will happily eat these too, because there is no green coloured food in sight.
Apple and Cheese Quinoa Balls
Makes approx 12 balls
- 200g of cooked quinoa
- 1 large apple, grated (I recommend using a sweet variety – I used a lady alice)
- 90g of cheddar
- 1 egg, beaten
- Olive Oil
Preheat oven to 180c or 350f
Add quinoa, apple, cheese and beaten egg to a bowl and mix thoroughly to combine.
Form into balls, place on a baking tray and brush over the top with a little olive oil
Bake in the oven until firm and a pale golden colour (approx 30 mins)
You could also add some chives or fresh herbs to the mixture for additional flavour.
