Vegetarian meatballs with flavor of gingerbread, could it be something for the Christmas dinner. Yes, absolutely. They were really good. I had leftovers of both quinoa and beans in the freezer so I used them and they were a little frozen when I mixed them so I did not need a binder. However, if the mixture is loose, you can add almond flour / bread crumbs / oatmeal.
