Quinoa Bites with Yogurt Dijon Dip

 

I am a big quinoa fan! I just love this healthy grain. It is packed with protein, lots of fiber and it is low on carbs. Even my boyfriend loves it....surprise, it is super yummie and healthy. 


Now, look at these quinoa bites! They look awesome and taste delish and they are a welcome change from simple quinoa salads or just quinoa as a side dish.
