Sweet Potato Quinoa Balls step by step
- Preheat oven to 400°F Fahrenheit..
- Cut sweet potato into small cubes and spread out on baking sheet. Drizzle with coconut oil, paprika, cayenne, and salt and pepper..
- Bake potatoes for about 20 minutes or until potatoes are fairly soft..
- While potatoes are baking, cook the quinoa in water. Bring to a boil and then summer until all of the water is absorbed (10-20 minutes).
- Chop onions into small pieces. Once quinoa and potatoes are done, sauté the onions in a large frying pan. Stir in the sweet potatoes. Cover and cook over medium heat for about 5-10 minutes until the sweet potatoes begin to break down. Then, stir in the quinoa and mash together while cooking. Once everything begins to stick together, place mixture in a bowl and refrigerate until it is cool enough to handle..
- Once cool, roll mixture into balls (whatever size you like). You can either eat these now, or freeze them. I think they are easier to fry once they are frozen..
- When you are ready to serve them, roll the balls in an egg wash and cover cook over medium heat. Be sure to cook each side..
- Serve alone or with a sauce of your choice. I like a roasted vegetable tomato sauce, but BBQ sauce or mustard would be really good..
