Hawaii Mom Blog: Quinoa + Spinach Cakes

Quinoa + Spinach Cakes

The only way my kids will eat quinoa is if I make quinoa cakes.

To try and make them eat more veggies, I made made these Quinoa + Spinach cakes.  They are tasty by themselves, but I drizzled on a dill sauce to make them look more appealing (and try to hide as much of the spinach as possible).

Quinoa cakes are really versatile - you can add shredded carrots or zucchini, corn, etc.

The Quinoa + Spinach Cakes were a hit with everyone in my family except for my youngest son, who tried to pick out whatever spinach he could see.

But at least he ate the quinoa!
