As we have modified our diets over the years we removed all the “white foods”.
Rice, potatoes, pasta, bread…
But there was a grain that was sorta white, and had more protein and there were so many things that you could use it for. So, we added that into our rotation, in moderation.
I got this recipe from my MIL and it’s a great substitute for rice – something to “sop” up the sauce!
It’s pretty versatile, you can add different veggies as binders, or cook the veggies with the quinoa. Many options!
- 2 cups cooked quinoa
- 2 eggs or 2 egg whites
- 1 cup shredded carrots
- 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
- 2 tbl flour
- 1/2 tsp season salt
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1. Heat a skillet to medium high heat
- 2. Mix everything together
- 3. Using a 1/4 cup measure, place mixture on griddle. Fry until done as desired. Flipping after 5-10 min
- dijon mustard and honey
- ranch and chili garlic
