On Sundays, at our house, we love to enjoy a breakfast that’s more like a brunch. Sometimes I’ll make hash browns or potato latkes to serve with scrambled eggs or an omelette. However, this inspiration for “Vegetable Quinoa Cakes” came to me one day, and it has turned out to be one of my go-to foods — for breakfast, lunch and even a healthy snack. I especially enjoy it with my “Middle Eastern Hummus,” although they also go great with my “Chunky Guacamole” or my “Chunky Applesauce.”
To make this recipe Vegan, add 2-3 T. extra virgin olive oil to replace the eggs.
This recipe can also be found on this blog in The Plumeria Café. The Plumeria Café is a charming little cafe found in my novel, “Lady in the Window.” The book will be in stores May 9, 2017 (from SelectBooks), and it is now available via Pre-Order with FREE shipping:
