To admit kale was just few years ago completely unknown to me. As I live in Germany and there is some local production I can easily find it on the market. Just the typical kale recipes from german cuisine are not my case at all and had no ideas how to cook it.
As I have been looking for some dark leafy green vegetables lately and found nothing else but spinach … Nothing against spinach we just cook pretty often. So looking for some other greens but spinach a lovely kale smiled at me 🙂 So I decided to give it a try and made this amazingly delicious crispy quinoa patties here. Thy turned out to taste so good with kale and I am definitely going to cook those again.
These quinoa patties are also very tasty made with spinach, beet green or Swiss chard…
I cannot wait for the Swiss chard season as I know it is so delicious and really healthy too. Otherwise if you want to try some recipes with leafy greens you should check out this oven-backed Bulgur and Spinach Balls.
If you use soy yoghurt as in the recipe or other plant-based yogurt this meal is vegan, lactose free and gluten free.
The patties are crispy from the outside but soft and juicy in the inside. They are so yummy and easy to make so you will love them.
The dip is also easy and you can add fresh herbs that you like or even might have in you garden.
The salad is just a simple fresh salad with radishes and spring onions but you can make your favourite salad and create your own dish.
