1. Cook quinoa. Cook chickpeas (or take from a can).
2.Mix quinoa, chickpeas, spices, herbs, egg, and chickpea flour in a bowl.
3. Make patties from the ‘dough’ and pan fry with coconut oil.
4. With hand blender, mix herbs, lemon, and yogurt.
5. Serve sauce with cakes.
*This was a random recipe inspired by overcooked quinoa that I couldn’t throw out…and it totally worked! Try these ‘cakes with lentils or black beans–both amazing. You can also sautee onion, garlic, red/green peppers, celery and herbs and add that to the ‘dough’ before frying.
**You could make these in a smaller size and serve as an appetizer or use 1/4 cup measurement for a meal portion.
