Vegan Quinoa Cakes

I found a very delicious recipe from Green Food Green Thumb and I just thought I'd share it with everyone. (The picture is also from Green Food Green Thumb)

  • 2 c. cooked quinoa

  • 1/4 c. whole wheat pastry flour for gluten free, use garbanzo bean flour

  • 2 tbs. ground flax seeds

  • 1/4 c. water

  • 1 large carrot, grated

  • 1/2 sweet onion, chopped fine

  • 2 tbs. chopped fresh cilantro

  • 1/4 tsp. paprika

  • 1/4 tsp. cumin

  • 1 tsp. lemon zest.

  • 1/2 tsp. lime zest

  • juice from 1 lemon

  • pinch of red pepper flakes

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • fresh salsa to garnish

  • 1 1/2 tbs. canola oil

  • Directions:
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

  • Cook quinoa according to directions. Fluff with a fork and set aside.

  • Combine 2 c. cooked quinoa with flour, ground flax seeds and water.

  • Add grated carrots, spices, lemon and lime zest, and lemon juice. Stir to combine.

  • Wet hands with water, and form 6-1" thick quinoa patties. Pat edges of patties to firm up--rewetting hands with water if needed.

  • Place canola oil in stovetop pan and brown patties for 4 minutes on each side.

  • Transfer to baking sheet and bake for additional 15-18 minutes until golden brown and crispy.

  • Remove from oven and serve. Garnish with salsa, vegan sour cream, and fresh avocado slices.

  • **Optional: for a lower fat version, skip the pan sear and put the patties straight into the oven. Bake for an additional 10 minutes until cooked through.

  • Namaste,
    Sweet Zen Life

    Onions? Added raw or cook first, or perhaps cook with quinoa preliminarily?
