Love That Quinoa Burger! «
November 1, 2010 by Linda So yummy! If you want a change of pace that’s meat-free, yet full of protein, fiber, and very filling…this might be for you. I like it with Tzatziki on top (my recipe is in this post), or a little “fry sauce” (what some drive-ins call that wonderful mayo/ketchup combo), and with a thick slice of tomato, avocado, onion and lettuce, as a burger should be, it’s fab. Don’t be afraid of Quinoa. It cooks just like rice – might even be a little easier! UPDATE!! 2 rounded cups cooked quinoa (see note below for cooking instructions) 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese (or other variety, if you prefer) 1/2 cup low-fat cottage cheese 1 medium carrot, finely grated (OR 1 cup shredded zucchini, squeezed dry) 3 eggs 3 tablespoons all purpose flour 2 green onions, including white parts 1 /2 teaspoon sugar 1/4 teaspoon black pepper 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin 1/8 teaspoon salt 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder Olive oil for frying To cook quinoa for the above recipe: 1 cup uncooked quinoa 2 cups water

Savory bite-sized quinoa and kale patties [Vegetarian] Jaymi's Notes: I love a good quinoa patty. I've made a few versions over the years, and there seems to be countless ways to make these with both sweet and savory flavors. This version is one that even meat lovers could appreciate, since they are so dense from the bread crumbs. Usually I make quinoa patties without the bread crumbs as they are lighter and more crumbly, and you can modify this recipe to do the same thing -- but if you like your patties dense and firm, I recommend keeping them in. I made two changes to the recipe.

Broccoli Salad Today Is Well since Monday I have been on my 30 day no junk food diet! So my carb loving self has been trying to stay away from pasta, bread and mashed potatoes. I ran across this recipe and looked to good not to try! Fluffy Falafel…and an easy Tzatziki! « October 21, 2009 by Linda FALAFEL with TZATZIKI I eat fairly low carb, and the carbs I do eat usually come from veggies and a lot of beans. I LOVE BEANS! This recipe is a great vegetarian dish for when you’re tired of meat or just want something a little different. It gives a very soft patty, but it holds together well when fried in a small amount of oil and they firm up slightly as they rest. Archive » Falafel The old cliché is that broke-ass college kids live on Top Ramen and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, but I lived on a strange but reliable rotation of shitty iced coffee, homemade spaghetti with canned chopped clams, tuna melts from Cable Car, and falafel sandwiches. When I started out at art school in New York City, my first apartment was a tiny 1-bedroom 6th floor walk-up on MacDougal Street that I shared with one of my foundation year classmates. We lived right down the street from Mamoun’s, a tiny speck of a place where you could get a stellar falafel sandwich and a cup of lentil soup to go for about 4 bucks. It was standard practice to pick up this exact combo after class on the way home from West 4th Street station and gobble it up in the ten minutes’ worth of free time I had before hunkering down with my croquis book, gouache, and brushes for the night. And then I re-watched Party Girl and got really hungry. Falafel is just as easy to make, if not easier, than meatballs.

How Huge Food Corporations Will Make Upcoming Food Price Hikes Even Worse Richardson reports: "The fate of the corn crop on Midwestern farms even has comedian Stephen Colbert worried. Agricultural economist Bruce Babcock appeared on his show, warning him that the prices of meat, dairy and eggs will increase because 'American livestock are fed a corn-heavy diet.' As Colbert put it, 'It is one thing for global warming to make sea levels rise, but nobody told me it would make my cheese levels recede.'"

Vegetarian Pho (Vietnamese Noodle Soup) (Image credit: Kelli Foster) There are few better comfort foods than Vietnamese phở. When I'm on the verge of a cold or in need of a culinary pick-me-up, I sit down to a restorative bowl of aromatic broth, slippery rice noodles, and fresh, customizable garnishes. Between the broth, noodles, and assorted garnishes — like onions, herbs, chiles, and lime — phở (pronounced "fuh" not "foe") is a wonderful interplay of textures and flavors.

Summer tomatoes are abundant and delicious right now – my garden is overflowing with them! I've been enjoying them in salads and quick garden sauces, over grilled flank steak, and in my egg sandwiches. But today I wanted to make something different, using up some zucchini that I bought at the farmer's market this weekend and I came up with this delicious frittata. What I love about frittatas is that you can enjoy them for any meal and they are so inexpensive to make.
