Gluten Free Meatballs

1 lb. ground beef
1/4 cup quinoa, cooked
1 small onion, chopped
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. oregano
1/2 tsp. parsley
1/2 tsp. basil
(Can use 1 /2 tsp. Italian seasoning instead of oregano, parsley, basil)
fresh ground pepper

Cook quinoa in 1/2 cup of water.  Mix beef, onion, egg, quinoa, and spices.  Shape into small balls about 1 1/2 inches in diameter.  Brown in pan over medium high heat.  Add 1/4 cup water and cover.  Turn heat to low and simmer 15 minutes or until no longer pink inside.  Add additional water if necessary.  Can skip this step if simmered in sauce instead.

Use in your favorite sauce.  Can be flash frozen, then placed in a ziploc freezer bag. I made gluten free spaghetti & meatballs.
