Quinoa, lens and veggie Patties

Healthy Monday Tueasday

Second week of the year and i already failed my monday blogging goals! So sorry, that was a weird time here and i wasn’t feeling so well. But i know we have to carry on and cook on!

I want to share this delicious recipe of veggie patties that i adapted from this great and famous blog.

It’s another veggie recipe. So it’s perfect for my healthy mondays posts!

What i like very much about that recipe is that my kids loved the quinoa patties and they usually don’t eat quinoa at all. The other thing that i liked so much is that it’s very adaptable and you can flavor them as you want, as you can, following season vegetables.

In the original recipe, they are pesto flavored. Of course as always, i’m missing some ingredients. So i decided to try 2 different flavors: mustard and tomato puree.

You could add spices and herbs of course. I didn’t, because i wanted my children to eat that! And they are that kind of kids you know… picky! It also can be transformed easily in a gluten free recipe using rice flour for exemple.
