1 tin of coconut milk
about 1 cup of quinoa (the ratio should be 1 part quinoa to 2 parts coconut milk)
juice of 1 lime
a few pieces of fresh coriander, chopped (optional)
Step 1: Put quinoa, coconut milk and lime juice in a saucepan. Bring to the boil, then simmer until all the liquid has been absorbed (about 15 minutes).
Step 2: Add in coriander (if using). Mix well.
Step 3: This dish is very versatile. It can be enjoyed hot or cold, for breakfast, lunch or dinner. You can eat it on it’s own or have it with salad, a stir-fry, chili or curry, in a wrap, etc. I had it for lunch with some stir-fried vegetables and tofu.
3-4 small potatoes peeled and chopped
1 tin chickpeas
1 handful shredded kale
1 handful coriander chopped
1 teaspoon spices of your choice (I used garim masala. You could also use other spices such as cumin, coriander, turmeric, chili)
Step 1: Steam or boil potatoes until soft (about 10 minutes)
Step 2: Rinse and drain chickpeas. Put in mixing bowl with cooked potato. Mash with potato masher (or fork).
Step 3: Add kale, coriander and spices to potato and chickpea mixture. Mix everything together well.
Step 4: Form mixture into patties and place on baking tray lined with parchment paper. (I made 7 patties from this mixture.) Bake in oven preheated to 200 c for 25-30 minutes. Flip patties halfway through so that they are cooked evenly on both sides.
Step 5: They should look something like this when they’re done. Enjoy some as part of your lunch or dinner.
