Whenever I make a vegetarian version of a recipe, or vegetarian recipe for that matter, I have a mental (and moral) battle about whether or not I should tell the boyfriend. Tell him and there is the chance that he won’t even take a bite. Don’t tell him and well, I am either outright lying or lying by omission. And my often given rationale about unbiased “recipe testing” usually isn’t much of a consolation.
However lucky for me, this time he scooped one up before I had the chance to tell him. The results? A hint of shock and a smile of approval. For a quinoa zucchini meatball in my home, this is the culinary equivalent of hitting a home run. Quinoa meatballs: 1. Meat loving boyfriend: 0.
