I love finding recipes that look delicious, easy to make and then when I make them- actually are delicious and easy to make! These quinoa cakes were exactly that.
On my quest to save some money and not eat out/order in as much, I pin so many recipes. I came across this one last night and wanted to make it immediately. Luckily I had almost all the ingredients except an egg. Once I obtained the egg (it’s nice to have friendly neighbors) I whipped this recipe up in no time. They are crunchy and delicious, filling too!
They are reminiscent of latkes, one of my all time favorite food but with a healthy-ish twist. I even had the ingredients to whip up the lemon-garlic aioli to go with the cakes. I adjusted the quantity of ingredients based on what I had and it made 5 hockey puck sized cakes with one tiny cake. I recommend this recipe but also to add different types of ingredients to tweak the flavor and texture!
