I promise that my intention is not to make this blog into a quinoa fest. But this was another recipe so good I would have shared it anyway, so here it is--quinoa and chickpea cakes with chipotle and curry. Spicy, rich, filling, and stupid good for you. It's meals like this that make quinoa fun. UPDATE: Last week the Capt'n sent us home with some of his famous smoked kingfish. We adapted this recipe so that it was - quinoa cake, avocado, shredded smoked kingfish, greek yogurt mixed with lemon juice and chipotle, and salsa. It was insanely good. Chickpea & Quinoa Cakes 1/2 cup cooked quinoa 1 can chickpeas, drained 1/2 onion 2 garlic cloves 1 egg 1/2 tsp kosher salt 1 tsp curry 1/2 tsp chili powder 1 tsp chipotle 1/4 corn flour 1 tbsp chia seeds Salsa and avocado to top Combine all ingredients but the corn flour in a food processor. Blend until all the ingredients have been broken down. Place in a bowl and stir in the flour. Heat 1/4" oil in a heavy pan. Form the batter into 3" round cakes. Fry on both sides for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown. Top with salsa and sliced avocado and serve.
