Quinoa Cakes

Quinoa Cake RecipeTrying to feed adults and an almost toddler can be a challenge for us, but gives me a nice excuse to push me a little bit. I LOVE quinoa and especially love that it is a complete protein without any additional help. Forming it into patties seems like a no brainer and makes for a perfect finger food for my 11 month old Max. What?! Don't believe me that an 11 month old would like to chomp on quinoa cakes? Ok, see for yourself then! 

QUINOA CAKES RECIPE - This recipe is adapted from Whole Foods

  • 1 cup quinoa, rinsed and drained
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion 
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely chopped garlic 
  • 2 Cups left over veggies – I used broccoli, kale, and green zucchini I had leftover
  • 5 basil leaves finely chopped
  • Zest of 1 large lemon 
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat flour 
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons flax seed bran
  • 1 egg 
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill 
  • 1 1/2 cups plain nonfat yogurt 
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice

Bring quinoa and water to a boil in a medium pot. Reduce heat to medium low, cover and simmer until liquid is absorbed, 20 to 30 minutes. Set aside off of the heat for 5 minutes, then fluff with a fork and set aside to let cool.

Preheat oven to 400°F. In a large bowl, combine cooked quinoa with onion, garlic, veggies, basil, zest, flour, baking powder, egg, and pepper. Form mixture into eight (4- to 5-inch) patties and arrange on a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat. Bake, flipping halfway through, until lightly browned and just crisp, about 25 minutes.

Stir together dill, yogurt and lemon juice in small bowl, then spoon over warm quinoa cakes.

Made these today. They turned out incredible. I multiplied the formula and figure another egg would have been a smart thought Do my Assignment Online I'll unquestionably make this again however. A debt of gratitude is in order for the formula.
