You don’t have to be a vegetarian to love these appetizers! These gluten-free quinoa bites are a great nutritious appetizer that can be made for a large gathering with friends, or a more quaint dinner with your loved one. The main ingredient, quinoa, was unfamiliar to many but the interest in quinoa has increased dramatically in recent years. Quinoa is a great source of the omega-3 fatty acids (which most commonly found in plants), vitamin E, protein, magnesium and phosphorous. [1] Most grains are considered to be inadequate protein sources – but not quinoa! Quinoa is a complete protein source that boasts many phytonutrients too!

This dish is as healthy as it is tasty! Lamb is an excellent source of high-quality protein and is a source of iron, B vitamins and trace elements such as copper, manganese, and selenium. By topping the lamb chops with the lemon mint sauce, it not only freshens the dish, but also provides high amounts of vitamin K, C, and A.

I must confess that before 6 months ago, I had never tried brussels sprouts in my life! The first time was at the famous Jean Georges Steakhouse in Las Vegas. I remember the flavor and texture being enhanced by a balsamic reduction and chopped walnuts – I was in love. Who thought the star of a meal could be a side of brussels sprouts?! After that night, all I could think about was recreating my own version and fortunately, it only took me a couple of tries to perfect it. This dish is simple, has little prep time, and is sure to be a crowd-pleaser!
