Once again thanks to Donna Hay and Bon Appetit for this recipe
I'm a bit philosophically anti Quinoa...as I am about the Term Super Foods and other..."Let's be
Over Healthy" Food Fads
It's the hype that bores me also I had to chase all over town to buy these flakes!!!
Luckily it wasn't a hot hot day.
Meanwhile there are some very good uses for all these foods and I love eating ALL beautiful produce
AND I do
On my Grain Free "feed the mob" week, I found this recipe of coating Fish with Quinoa Flakes.
It was very delicious and I may even... in fact I will... do it again
1 teaspoon ground cumin
2 teaspoons chili flakes
1 teaspoon sea salt, plus more for sprinkling
1 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into cubes
Cracked black pepper
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 cups quinoa flakes
1 tablespoon finely grated lime zest
4 snapper fillets
1/2 cup flat-leaf parsley leaves, finely chopped
Mayonnaise and lime wedges, to serve
Preheat oven to 200C
Place the cumin, 1/2 teaspoon of the chili flakes and 1 teaspoon of the salt in a bowl
and mix to combine.
Place the sweet potatoes on a rimmed baking sheet and
Sprinkle with half the salt mixture, pepper and 1 tablespoon of the oil.
Roast, turning halfway, for 20 minutes or until golden.
and mix to combine.
Place the eggs in a bowl and whisk to combine.
Heat the remaining oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat.
Dip the fish into the egg and press into the quinoa mixture to coat.
the parsley, mayonnaise and lime wedges.
Fish Cakes for lunch. Double Quinoa Use!
Yes in fact, I suggest, cook excess so that you have enough to make these little gems
So so tasty
Hard to give exact amounts but as a rule of thumb, I would suggest
Equal amounts of potatoes and fish and enough egg to bind
Potatoes, peeled cubed
Parsley finely chopped 2-3 tablespoons
Sea Salt and Freshly ground Black Pepper
Oil for frying
Cook the potatoes in salted water and mash roughly with a little olive oil
Meanwhile flake remaining crumbed fish and
Add to potatoes
Add parsley and beaten egg
Season to taste
Meanwhile roll into balls and dip into Quinoa Flakes
Games are being played
Definitely a keeper
