Story

I often cook a little extra of whatever I’m making to remake it into something the following day. Always cook extra quinoa when making these broccoli and cashew wraps … and so there I was, looking at the container of quinoa thinking I’d make them into a patty for Indi’s lunch.

I threw in about 1 cup of quinoa in a bowl, then to bind it about a tablespoon of chia, then some almond milk. Hm., this was turning into a different dish – I then added a sprinkle of flaxmeal and about 1/2 cup of flour and some more almond milk – and I had a pancake consistency! So pancakes they became. I’m coming back to this post having tried this recipe a couple times – and I can tell you with confidence it’s delicious, Indi loves it, and the bonus is it’s pretty healthy!
