How to Make It
In a medium saucepan of boiling water, cook the quinoa until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain and return to the pan. Cover and let stand for 10 minutes; fluff with a fork. Spread the quinoa on a baking sheet in an even layer and cool to room temperature.
In a medium bowl, combine the quinoa, pork, eggs, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Mix well and form into 12 meatballs.
In a large cast-iron skillet, heat the oil. Add the meatballs and cook over moderate heat, turning, until browned, about 8 minutes. Stir in the marinara sauce and basil and bring
to a simmer. Cover and cook over low heat until the meatballs are cooked through, 7 to 8 minutes longer.
