Quinoa and veggie fritters

Back after so long!!!

So here we are again. Today Mr. F came home to tell me he had been learning about "healthy eating" at school so I seized the chance and made these quinoa and veggies fritters. They were easy and delicious!

Here is the recipe:

2 cups of cooked quinoa
2 eggs
Veggies of your choice. I added:
1 grated carrot
3 grated mushrooms
1 can of corn
1/4 small broccoli - only the busy tops
1 tomato
Some chopped parsley
Salt and pepper

1. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl. If the outcome is too dry, add another egg.
2. Form the patties and fry them until golden brown.

I ate mine with yoghurt and lemon but you can also make an avocado and tomato salsa.

Mung beans and sausage stew

We've noticed we like sausage stew with some kind of beans!! This stew is very similar to the one we posted a few months ago but this time we used mung beans and it was delicious!

1/2 kilo of mung beans soaked overnight
6 long traditional sausages
1 big onion chopped
Spices (we used turmeric, cumin, salt and vegetable stock cubes)

1. Fry the sausages until they are cooked (we used fresh sausages so they were completely raw). Cut in bite sized pieces. Set aside.
2. Fry the onion in a pot big enough to fit the rest of the ingredients. Add the sausages and stir, add the spices and salt and then add in the previously soaked mung beans.
3. Add enough water to cover the ingredients and bring to a boil. Once it has been boiling for about 15 minutes, lower the heat and cook until the beans are soft.
4. Serve and enjoy! Can be eaten with rice, toast or by itself with yoghurt and a dash of lemon if you are like us :)
