  1. 1 cup Quinoa Seed, soaked
  2. 1/4 cup Quinoa Flour
  3. 1 red bell pepper, diced
  4. 1 green bell pepper, diced
  5. ¼ red onion, diced
  6. ½ carrot, diced
  7. 3-4 Garlic cloves, chopped
  8. 1/2 tsp cumin, toasted and ground
  9. 1/2 tsp coriander, toasted and ground
  10. ½ tsp Cayenne Pepper
  11. Juice of 1/2 lime
  12. 1 tsp salt
  13. Sunflower oil for cooking
To make the Quinoa
  1. Drain the water off the quinoa.
  2. Bring 2 cups of water to a boil and drop in the quinoa. Cook until the quinoa absorbs the water and is sticky.
  3. Heat a saute pan and add the oil. Add in the vegetables and cook until soft. Take off the heat and cool to room temperature.
  4. Combine the veggies, quinoa, and quinoa flour.
To make the cakes
  1. Using the palms of your hands, shape 1 inch (2 oz) balls of the quinoa mix, and set on a sheet tray.
  2. Stick in the freezer for 15-20 minutes.
  3. Heat up a saute pan with sunflower oil. Drop the cakes into the pan. Let them “sear” (get brown) on one side. Using a spatula, carefully turn the cakes over, and let them cook on the other side.
  4. Remove from heat, and drain on paper towels.
  1. Serve Quinoa Cakes as entrées, as a snack, or as a salad topping.
