The whole blogging world seems obsessed with quinoa right now. There are so many different salads, cakes, and side dishes out there. Lots of people even eat it for breakfast, kind of like oatmeal. I have been experimenting with different salads and versions trying to find more ways to incorporate it into our diets as well. It is so good for you, and so versatile, you can’t help but want to eat it! I have had doing a “cake” on my list for awhile, so when I saw this recipe, I knew it was time.
I made this for lunch a couple weeks ago. It was the perfect light lunch in my opinion. I used regular muffins tins, but you could use a mini muffin tin and serve it as an appetizer. My husband suggested putting in some Italian sausage next time. I was actually going to try that last week, but with my parents here it just didn’t happen. The flavors would go really well together, and it would make for a great dinner option. I plan on making it very soon.
It may come as no surprise, but my 7 year old wouldn’t get even close to this. We did force him to try one bite, but he wasn’t a fan. I didn’t expect him to be, but had to give it a shot. Now, when I do the sausage version I will be giving it to him as his meal, and hoping the sausage is enough to make him eat it
I am very excited to introduce you to Cassie today. Cassie is the host of Bake Your Day. She and I started blogging around the same time, and have been followers of each other since the beginning. Cassie guest posted for me last summer, but we have both come so far, I asked if she would help out again. If you are not already a fan of Bake Your Day, then you really need to head over there. Trust me you will NOT be disappointed.
Hey there everyone, I am Cassie from Bake Your Day and I am honored to be posting for Erin today. I moved earlier this year and remember how hectic it was.
Erin and I met way, way back at the beginning of both of our blogging “careers” and I have loved watching Erin’s blog grow into what it is today. She and her recipes are so real and honest, and we definitely share a love for curry!
I have a deep affinity for quinoa. It is the staple of all staples in my house and I add it to lots of things like burgers, salads, quesadillas, etc. I think I love it the most for its versatility. I love that it picks up the flavors of whatever you pair it with.
I have found my new favorite quick-fix meal in these cakes. So simple and quick and I can’t even begin to tell you how much flavor they have. Fresh lemons and herbs shine through these. If you don’t have sage, use any herb that you like. They are fresh, light and summery!
