Sweet Potato Quinoa Bites

I wanted to jazz up the everyday steamed potato with some added protein. Sweet Potato QuinoaI had some left over cooked quinoa so I added it to my sweet potato and made these bites. You can also make a sweet variety by omitting the egg and using 1/2 a ripe banana instead.

  • 1-2  tbs. flour
  • 4 tbs cooked quinoa
  • 1 beaten egg

  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • olive oil for cooking
