Cook the Quinoa
Add quinoa and 1½ cups water to medium pot over medium-high heat and bring to a boil.

Prepare Ingredients and Roast Broccoli
Cut broccoli into bite-sized pieces.
Coarsely chop spinach.
Core tomato and cut into ½" dice.
Quarter apple and remove core. Cut into ½" slices.
Place broccoli on prepared baking sheet. Toss with 1 tsp. olive oil and spread into a single layer. Roast in hot oven until browned and fork-tender, 14-16 minutes.
While broccoli cooks, make meatballs.
Cook the Meatballs
In a mixing bowl, combine ground chicken, spinach, cheese and a pinch of salt. Form mixture into 8 equally-sized meatballs.
Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil.
Add meatballs to hot pan and roll occasionally until browned all over and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 11-13 minutes.
Remove from burner.
Make Sauce and Finish Dish
Place another medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat.
Add tomatoes and 1 tsp. olive oil to hot pan and cook until tomato starts to soften, 1-2 minutes.
