Full recipe in video below
1 cup cooked quinoa
1 cup canned or cooked pinto beans
1/2 cup tomato paste
2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp sweetener of choice
optional light shredded mozzarella cheese (vegan brands work too!)
Preheat oven to 350 F and grease a baking sheet well, then set aside. In a medium bowl, mash the beans completely. Stir in all remaining ingredients. Taste, then add a little more sweetener only if needed. (Mine didn’t need it.) Roll into balls, then break off a piece of the cheese—if using—and push it into the middle before sealing the ball back up. Place the balls onto the baking tray and cook 30 minutes. For a crispy outer shell, feel free to broil a minute at the end.
