Recipe by Natalie Rizzo, MS, RD


  • ½ cup quinoa, uncooked
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon diced ginger
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • ¾ cup diced broccoli, stems removed
  • ⅓ cup cooked edamame beans
  • 3 tablespoons Kikkoman® Less Sodium Soy Sauce, divided
  • 2 large eggs
  • ⅓ cup Kikkoman® Panko
  • ¼ cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • ½ cup 2% plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons Kikkoman® Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce



Preheat oven to 400° F. In a small saucepan, combine the quinoa and water and bring to a boil. Once it reaches a boil, cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer for 15 minutes (all the water should be absorbed). Set quinoa aside to cool. In a large bowl, combine the ginger, garlic, broccoli, edamame beans, 2 tablespoons soy sauce, eggs, panko, flour and quinoa. Stir until well combined. Drizzle the vegetable oil on a baking sheet and use a paper towel to coat the sheet with oil. Using your hands, form small bites (about 2-inch diameters) and place on the baking sheet. Cook for 5 minutes and then flip. Cook for an additional 5 minutes. While the bites are baking, making the dipping sauce by combining 1 tablespoon soy sauce, Greek yogurt and sriracha in a small bowl. Stir until well combined. Serves 5-6.
