Quinoa Cakes

These cakes are delicious and not hard to make. They’re good plain or with the pesto sauce on top (see sauce recipe at bottom).  Adding avocados, or salsa, is tasty, too!

½ cup cheddar cheese, shredded, sharp white or orange
¼ cup parmesan, fresh, shredded
½ teaspoon granulated garlic
½ teaspoon granulated onion
½ teaspoon chili powder
1 ¼ teaspoon sea salt
Dash pepper
¼ cup bread crumbs
1/3 cup olive oil

  • Mix all ingredients thoroughly in bowl.
  • In frying pan, heat oil to medium heat.
  • Spoon quinoa mixture into pan in small patty amounts.
  • Cook until brown on edges – about 5 minutes.
  • Make sauce and serve on the side.

2/3 cup    sour cream, low fat or regular
4 tablespoons pesto sauce
¼ teaspoon sea salt
½ teaspoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon water
