Dinner is Served: Quinoa Patties and Brussels Sprouts Slaw

I’ve been pinning delicious-looking recipes on Pinterest for months now, and finally took the time to actually try a couple of them!

Quinoa Patties with Asian Brussels Sprouts Slaw and Peanut Sauce

First, was the “Quinoa Burger” by Eating Well Living Thin. I prefer to call it a patty instead of a burger, but whatever you call them, I couldn’t stop eating them! Yum! Very good. I didn’t have cottage cheese, so I substituted greek yogurt, and it still worked well. I’m definitely making these again. They kind of had a falafel vibe. Yum! (Note: Make sure your oil is good and hot before you start cooking up the patties, or it’ll just soak in and stick to the bottom instead of acting as a barrier between the patty and the pan. Also, they cook better smaller than larger. Yea, the first batch didn’t turn out quite as well as the second.) :)

Then for our side, I made the “Crunchy Cabbage Salad with Peanut Dressing” by Tina Jeffers on the Bliss blog. I used Brussels Sprouts instead of Cabbage. It was a nice topper on the Quinoa Patty or as a side dish. Caution: don’t use too much of the sauce – it’s delicious, but potent. Also, I used chopped raw peanuts instead of cashews, because I had them on hand. By the way, if you’re looking for raw peanuts, check your local Asian Market. They almost always have the best price.

The Plated Piece: Bon Appetit!
