Vegetables and quinoa balls (BLW)

I started BLW with Téo when he was about six months old. I wanted to create an easy recipe, that I could make in large quantity and which I could freeze if I felt like it. This way, I would always have something healthy on hand to feed my baby during the busy days (or for the lazy mornings ;)). It really gave me a peace of mind, knowing that these Vegetable and Quinoa balls are a complete meal in itself. #YAY
