Tuesday was night one of a two-night meal plan. We had quinoa, kale, sweet potatoes and pesto. Last night we used the leftovers to make quinoa cakes.
NIght #2 Recipe: Crispy Quinoa and Bean Cakes
Oh my goodness were these good and so simple to make. Total prep couldn’t have been more than 10 or 15 minutes and they cooked in about 4 1/2 minutes per side. I topped each with pesto from the night before since we now have an entire jar of pesto in our fridge to use. We each ate two cakes and will have them tonight again for dinner since there was so much leftover mixture.
Whether you are completely meatless or are just trying to cut meat out a few days a week, bookmark this recipe. Mike, a big meat eater, gave it a thumbs up both nights. Also, I’m now hooked on one night’s recipe turning into the base for night two. If you have similar recipes or meal plans, please share in the comments section!
