Teen Cuisine: Vegan & Gluten Free went great last night!  Here are the pictures~

Here are the recipes we used:

Quinoa Pizza Balls

1.  Pour the stock into a pot and bring to a boil.
2.  Add the quinoa, turn to low, cover, & cook 20 minutes.  After the 20 minutes check to see if the liquid is absorbed, if not, check every 5 minutes until it is.

4. In a large bowl, mash the beans until almost smooth.  Rip up the basil leaves into pieces and add in.  Then chop up the parsley and add it also.  Add the oregano, tomato paste, and garlic salt.  Finally, add the quinoa and mix with your hands until completely combined.
5. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.
6. Use a cookie scoop to make balls of the mixture and place onto the cookie sheets.
7. Bake for 15 minutes, then turn the pans around, and move the top pan down and the bottom pan up.  Bake another 15 minutes.
8.  Let cool and then eat!
