Buffalo Quinoa Bites



               2 tablespoons butter, melted

               2 tablespoon olive oil

               1/4 cup hot sauce (I use Siracha)

               1/2 teaspoon salt

               2 cups cooked quinoa

               1 cup cannellini beans, mashed

               1/2 cup panko bread crumbs

               4 large egg, lightly beaten

               1/2 teaspoon salt

               1 teaspoon peper

               3 tablespoons olive oil

               Creamy Style Ranch Dressing

               Arugala ( a bag from the grocery store is perfect!)



  1. Combine the melted butter, olive oil, hot sauce and 1/2 tsp salt in a medium size bowl. Whisk to combine and set aside.
  2. In another bowl combine the cooked quinoa, mashed cannellini beans, bread crumbs, egg, salt, pepper and 4 tablespoons of the buffalo sauce. Mix well to moisten the ingredients and then form into 30-35 equal size balls.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add olive oil. Add the balls to skillet and cook in batches until golden and crisp on all sides, about five minutes. Very gently toss a few balls at a time with the buffalo sauce (or if you feel like they will crumble you can drizzle the hot sauce over the quinoa balls after you’ve placed them on the arugala.)
  4. Divide arugala between each plate, followed by the quinoa bites and drizzle the ranch dressing over the salad. Serve and enjoy!
