8.26.2015 Kale Quinoa Cakes

These little cakes aren't hard to make, although I like it best when K and I work together.  We've tried a couple of different recipes and this is what we've settled on for our version:

4 eggs
2-1/2 c cooked quinoa
1/2 c grated Romano cheese
1 c (gluten free) bread crumbs
1 c cooked kale 
         (we minced the leaves, then wilted in a hot skillet with a dab of olive oil - 2-3 minutes)
garlic to taste - we used about 5 cloves
1/4 sweet onion, diced
1/2 tsp salt
olive oil

Whisk the eggs together.  Add quinoa, cheese, bread crumbs, kale, garlic, onion and salt.  Let stand for about five minutes.  Using a non-stick skillet, add enough olive oil to slick the bottom.  Add 1/4 cup measures of the batter, not crowding the cakes.  Brown on each side.  We served with salsa (me) and hot sauce (K).
