Quinoa Spinach Meatballs

DSC_0024These turned out so good that my family literally ate all of them in a matter of minutes. These would also work great if you freeze them and use them later for a quick snack or meal. Tops these over a salad, mix with squash pasta, stir fry them with a vegetable dish or eat them alone.DSC_0017
