Pumpkin Quinoa Cakes!

on June 1, 2012

These beauties are so simple to make and are great as an appy or on top of a crisp green salad.

What you’ll need…

  • 1 can of organic pumpkin
  • 2c cooked quinoa
  • 1 lemon
  • chives
  • 1 egg (optional – you could also use a ‘flax egg’!)
  • 3tbsp gf flour

Turn your oven onto a moderate temperature (325-350) ….

Mix pumpkin and quinoa together in a bowl…

Add the zest and juice of half a lemon, 6 chives (chopped), 1 lightly beaten egg and the flour.  Mix well.

We often use this recipe for an appy at Christmas, but if you make the cakes a little larger they are great as a main dish with a salad!

Place your cakes on a cookie sheet (we use parchment paper = easy clean up!) and bake for approximately 20 minutes – flipping once.  The outside of the cake should be crisp.   I top the cakes with a little bit of lemon sour cream and  chive….  YUM!

Happy, healthy eating y’all!
