1 Cook quinoa

Place the quinoa in a bowl, cover with warm water and rinse well. Drain in a fine sieve. Add the measured water to a saucepan and bring it to a boil over a high heat. Once boiling, add the quinoa and salt. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover with a lid and simmer for 15 min or until the liquid is fully absorbed and the quinoa is tender.

2 Make meatballs

Meanwhile, add the lamb mince to a bowl with the almond flour, sour cream, chopped fresh parsley, Dijon mustard, garlic paste, salt and black pepper. With clean hands, knead for 3-4 min until tender and fully combined. Shape into meatballs and set aside.
