Note

Here is a nice mid-week meal for these winter months adapted from OhSheGlows. Healthy and delicious, packed with goodies to help keep those colds at bay:

Directions

Step 1 Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Step 2 Mix the ground flax and water in a small bowl and set aside for 5 minutes to thicken.
Step 3 Combine all ingredients together in a large bowl, including the flax mixture and the 1.5 cups cooked quinoa. Stir well until the mixture comes together. Don't forget the flour because it helps bind the patties.
Step 4 Shape mixture into 1/4-cup patties with wet hands. Pack tightly so they hold together better. Place on baking sheet.
Step 5 Bake for 15 minutes, then carefully flip cakes, and bake for another 8-10 minutes until golden and firm.
Step 6 Cool for 5 minutes on the sheet and then enjoy!
