Well I have finally found my go to recipe.
I have told you how obsessed I have been with quinoa. This recipe combines quinoa and canned fish to make the perfect dish.
I have made a variation of this recipe twice so far. The kids actually really enjoy this as much as we do so it is a great family recipe as well.
Because I have quinoa in my refrigerator often I was able to whip this up pretty quickly.
Whenever I make quinoa I just follow the directions on the back of the package and add a vegetable bouillon cube to give it a little flavor.
Then I just grab whatever ingredients i have that go well with the type of canned fish I am using and whalla you are almost finished!
These patties are really good with just a side salad and sliced cheese, or peas and potatoes or as a sandwich. (Which by the way the sandwich is really really good, says my daughter!)
