RECIPE FRIDAY: Quinoa Cakes

This recipe shared courtesy of EatCleanDiet.com

Okay, I know it’s Saturday… but I was without internet yesterday. Recipe is still just as good… even though it’s a day late!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 2 large egg whites (or whole eggs if you haven’t had your healthy fats today)
  • 1/2 tsp coarse sea salt
  • 1/3 cup chives
  • 1/3 cup chopped onion
  • 1/3 cup parmesan cheese or old cheddar
  • 3 minced garlic cloves
  • 1/2 cup ground almonds
  • 1/3 cup wheat germ
  • Olive oil
  • balsamic vinegar
  • spinach greens
  • 1/3 cup gluten-free breadcrumbs (optional)

Instructions

1. In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients except for bread crumbs, olive oil, vinegar and spinach. Mix in the bread crumbs and stir gently until evenly incorporated. Form the mixture into ice cream scoop sized patties.

Heat a bit of olive oil in a large sauté pan set over medium-high heat and swirl to coat, or do it on a griddle pan. Add the patties to the pan so that they are not touching. Let cook about 4 minutes or until the first side is lightly browned. Carefully flip the patties with a spatula and let the second side cook until golden brown, about 4 minutes more. Repeat with the remaining patties, using additional olive oil if needed.

Serve on a lush bed of spinach greens and top with olive oil and balsamic vinegar!

Another great treat that tasty and good for you.

Strive to be healthy!
