Join Jennifer A. Welper, Mayo Clinic Wellness Executive Chef, as she creates a diet-friendly take on some mouthwatering Swedish meatballs with quinoa. Quinoa is used in this recipe to reduce the amount of ground beef per meatball and offer a healthier way to enjoy this classic dish. We recommend serving these meatballs with marsala sauce (recipe found on page 210 in our Cook Smart, Eat Well cookbook).
