Fenugreek Broccoli Quinoa Cakes

Fenugreek Broccoli Quinoa Cakes - Plattershare - Recipes, food stories and food lovers
There was a chocolate contest going on last week in another group I am member of. I was really craving for something savoury and healthy after a week of chocolate indulgence . (I posted few recipes there). There were few green veggies in my refrigerator. You better eat them all within two days otherwise they get spoiled. So I was thinking how to mix two or three veggies and make some savoury snack or breakfast as well. Thought of giving a try to combination of quinoa and veggies by baking small size cakes and I really loved these crispy on surface and chewy cheesy cakes. You won't believe that it's stuffed with broccoli and fenugreek 😀.
