Another Way to Sneak In Greens

There are so many ways to get your daily dose of greens, but here's one more in case you're not feeling the other 7 options! It can be a real struggle sometimes to get those all important leafy greens into your diet. I mean, how much lettuce can one person be expected to consume? It's recipes like this one that are perfect if you're just not interested in munching away on some leaves tonight. You'll still get all that delicious green goodness into your body where it can work its magic but without the work!

Quinoa Adzuki Bites with Tahini Lemon Sauce

I saw two similar recipes on Pinterest and decided to take elements of both to create this dish. What you get are almost meatball-like in consistency, simply baked in the oven, with a nice crispy crust. This makes a great plant-strong dinner - you're getting ample protein from the protein and adzuki beans, and some booster foods power in the form of nutritional yeast. The greens can be swapped out for whatever you like - I chose kale and cilantro here. But spinach, parsley, chard, beet greens... these would be all be great instead.

The sauce definitely brings this dish together. I actually prefer a thicker sauce than what you see in the photos - but by the time I added the water, it was too late! Taste it before you add the water to see if it's a consistency to your liking. You can always add water but you cannot take away!
