I hadn’t made quinoa cakes for awhile, in addition to I was inwards the mood for something dissimilar. I commonly merely mix the quinoa alongside a bunch of herbs in addition to spices as well as tike them up in addition to pose the cakes over a salad, but I ended upwards adding corn and black beans in addition to making a yogurt dipping sauce for them. These are more of a repast than my other cakes, just you could surely make these equally an appetizer for a political party too! They are very good for you, particularly because I used fatty gratuitous Greek yogurt for the sauce, too there is naught bad in the cakes at all. The perfect summertime meal/snack/appetizer!
For the cakes:
1 c. quinoa, cooked in addition to cooled
1 c. corn, thawed
one/two c. canned black beans, drained too rinsed
i jalapeño, finely chopped
i tsp. chili pulverisation
1 tsp. oregano
i tsp. garlic powder
one/four c. + 2 T. breadcrumbs
two eggs + i egg white
1/2 c. cornmeal
2 T. olive petroleum
common salt and pepper
For the cumin yogurt sauce:
iii/4 c. 0% manifestly Greek yogurt (You can role the two% if y'all desire, it’ll be creamier)
iii T. diced green chiles (they come up in those little cans)
two tsp. cumin
i/four tsp. chili pulverization
ii T. cilantro, chopped
salt too pepper
Begin past making the sauce. Combine Greek yogurt, green chiles, cumin, chili powder, together with cilantro in a modest bowl and mix until combined. Season with table salt too pepper to gustation together with refrigerate until ready to serve.
For the quinoa cakes, combine quinoa, corn, black beans, jalapeño, chili pulverisation, oregano, garlic pulverisation, eggs, breadcrumbs, together with a good for you pinch of table salt too pepper in a medium mixing bowl. Mix amongst your hands until thoroughly combined. Put cornmeal in a shallow bowl too flavour amongst table salt in addition to pepper. Set aside. Form quinoa mixture into patties (I made mine near i/two inch thick as well as a ii inch diameter) as well as coat inward cornmeal. When patties are formed as well as coated in the cornmeal, oestrus a nonstick skillet amongst two T. olive petroleum over medium/high oestrus. Place patties inward pan too prepare virtually 2-three minutes per side, until aureate together with crispy. Be careful when you flip them so that they don’t crumble, they are fragile. Serve amongst cumin yogurt sauce together with more chopped cilantro every bit a garnish, if desired.
