Whilst scrambling through the fridge after hitting the gym the other day, wanting something that satisfied my carb craving, packed a protein punch but that didn’t drag me off the wagon, I found a bag of cooked quinoa left over from the night before.
I chopped up some fresh spinach and spring onion and mixed with the quinoa which had already been seasoned with garlic, salt, pepper and stock, threw in a couple of beaten eggs and approximately a 1/4 cup of coconut flour.
I misted a hot frying pan with oil and dolloped little rounds of the mixture in, pressing them down to form little patties and flipping them when they had turned golden on the underside.
Yum! For lunch I plated two up and served them with sautéed mushrooms, an egg and a little drizzle of sweet chilli sauce. Delicious.
