Sweet Potato Quinoa Balls

These balls are so good I usually always double the recipe.  They are just so convenient to have in your fridge.  As you all know I am a food prep kind gal- mostly for when I’m at work, so you better believe that these make the menu at least one a month.

You can enjoy them hot or cold, with sauce or none at all…  I will be posting my favourite Greek sauce, Tzaziki, very soon, which go with these so well.  Not only are they delicious but they are super easy to make. Really clean in the kitchen, they are really easy to play with, and by simply changing on ingredient you can make the recipe your own!

The perfect pairing to any protein dish, or even a salad topping! I don’t believe we should be afraid of carbs, so what better way to enjoy them than with vitamin packed carb balls! I highly recommend you double this recipe… they are just that good.
