  • These quinoa and kale cakes are a little taste of heaven. The quinoa gives these cakes a wonderful texture and the flavours are fantastic. These make a wonderful lunch dish when served with salad or can be served with steamed vegetables for a more substantial meal. However you choose to serve them you will not be disappointed.

    1 medium onion ( 160 g ), finely chopped

    Pinch salt

    2 cloves garlic, minced

    1 large potato ( 230 g ), steamed and mashed

    100 g kale, steamed and chopped

    170 g ( 1 cup ) quinoa

    500 ml ( 1 pint ) vegetable stock – I used kallo organic stock cubes

    1/2 teaspoon black pepper

    3/4 teaspoon cumin seeds, roasted and ground

    A little flour for dusting

    2 tablespoons oil for frying, per batch of 3

    Prepare the quinoa by putting into a pan with the stock and bringing to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for about 10 minutes. Take off of the heat and cover with a lid allowing for the quinoa to soak up the rest of the liquid and become fluffy. If there is still a little liquid left, place on a low heat and cook until the liquid has evaporated. Leave to one side.

    Fry the onions and garlic, with a pinch of salt, over a medium heat until the onions have softened and caramelised.

  • Put the onions into a bowl with the quinoa and all other ingredients and using your hands mash everything together well.

    Form into 6 equal size cakes and press the cakes into the flour, shaking off any excess.

    Fry in 2 batches of 3 cakes for 3-4 minutes on each side until golden brown. The cakes will soak up the oil so be sure not to use more than 2 tablespoons of oil per batch.

    Serve hot.
