Quinoa & Mushroom Arancini

Quinoa & Mushroom Arancini

When you commit to going grain free and/or paleo, you may notice that you start to feel amazing but miss some of your favourite foods that contain rice or corn! Well, here is a recipe that we love and you will too for its simplicity and taste!

This mix makes 20-22 balls.

  • 2 cups quinoa flakes (boiled and drained)

  • 1 cup Deeks bread crumbs (for the mix) + an additional cup for rolling

  • 4-5 small mushrooms, diced

  • 1 cup cheese (can be dairy free, vegan, etc.)

  • Salt and pepper

  • Oregano


  1. Prepare a bowl with 1 cup of Deeks breadcrumbs (ready for rolling).

  2. Once you have allowed the boiled quinoa to cool, mix all ingredients together thoroughly. Add salt and pepper to your taste.

  3. Take a teaspoon of mix and roll it into a ball and roll in the Deeks breadcrumbs before setting aside.

  4. Repeat until all balls are made.

  5. Heat oil in a small pan and lightly fry balls moving and turning continuously so they don’t burn.

  6. Serve with your favourite mayonnaise or aioli.
