Three arancini balls with olive and tomato sauce

Quinoa Arancini

This is my take on the crispy Italian rice balls. They are filled with buffalo mozzarella as we digest it more easily. They are also coated in ground almonds with makes them lower carb. Serve with a crisp green salad and the olive and tomato sauce. See recipe link below.
