QUINOA AND BEETROOT PATTIES

Hello Everyone!!!!

I am back with another healthy  recipe  in this beautiful month of February that celebrates Love. Red is the color of this month.

Deep purple roots of beetroot are eaten boiled, roasted or raw, and either alone or combined with any salad vegetable.The green, leafy portion of the beet is also edible. The young leaves can be added raw to salads, whilst the adult leaves are most commonly served boiled or steamed, in which case they have a taste and texture similar to spinach.Raw beetroot is 88% water, 10% carbohydrates, 2% protein, and less than 1% fat . In a 100 gram amount providing 43 Calories, raw beetroot is a rich source of folate and a moderate source  of manganese. We use beetroot very often in various recipes.It add a nice colour to the dish as well.

Another wonderful ingredient is Quinoa, pronounced ‘keen-wa’ is a great wheat-free alternative to starchy grains. There are two types: red and creamy white. Both types are slightly bitter when cooked and open up to release little white curls (like a tail) as they soften.Grown in South America (Peru, Chile and Bolivia) for thousands of years, quinoa formed the staple diet of the Incas and their descendants. In recent years, foodies in the UK and the US have heralded it as a superior alternative to  wheat, couscous and rice.

My Contribution to this 130th  # Foodiemonday #Bloghop theme #SeasonofRed is this yummy and healthy Quinoa and Beet Patties.These Yummy patties is loaded with the goodness of Quinoa and other multigrain and beetroot. It is easy to make and can be used in Burgers too.
