Quinoa and Beetroot Patties
This recipe appears in Keeping it Simple (in yes, where else but the Keen-Wah chapter?) as well as of course The Convenient Vegetarian. For those of you who are wondering why there are repeat recipes in TCV, there is some logic behind my madness. I was continually getting requests to collate all of my vegetarian recipes from across all of my work into one book, and so TCV is the answer to all of those queries. Having said that, there is about 60% brand new content in there. All good, all creative and all tasty Vego recipes with heaps of vegan options, raw desserts and treats and a LOT of gluten free, dairy free recipes as well. So if you fit any of those dietary restrictions, now would be the time to invest in that book. In the meantime, give this a little whirl. I think the egg is completely necessary, and lots of salad. LOTS. Enjoy.
