Quinoa Cakes

Anyone who reads food blogs probably has already bought their copy of Heidi Swanson's latest book, Super Natural Every Day. It's a beautifully arranged collection of healthy recipes and gorgeous photos to accompany them.

Sunday we went to an early evening pot-luck, so I wanted to make something hearty yet still small enough to act as finger food. I decided on these tasty pan-friend quinoa cakes. You can find the recipe here or in the book. For a nice dipping sauce, I mixed 1/2 cup plain yogurt with 1 1/2 tablespoons honey, 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice and a few healthy pinches of red pepper flakes. The brightness of the yogurt and lemon do wonders for the earthy flavor of the quinoa and the spice of the red pepper brought a punch of heat. 

Do you have Heidi's book? I'd love to hear what recipes you've tried out so far.
