I'm always on the lookout for nutty flavor and crunchy texture and this recipe for chickpea, quinoa and mushroom croquettes from Pig in the Kitchen turned out to be as satisfying as it sounded and looked. Composed of a grain, legume and vegetables, theses croquettes are a meal onto themselves. Consider serving them with a chutney or tomato based sauce or as a vegetarian burger. I served them alongside butter paneer masala.
I happened across Pig's blog shortly after starting Lisa's Kitchen via a Google search for I can't remember what, but I've become a regular reader ever since. Her writing is inspired and witty, and her pictures are sure to stimulate your appetite even if you aren't hungry. Featured are tasty and healthy recipes that are dairy, egg and soya-free, including many gluten-free choices, so if you suffer from food allergies, be sure to stop by Pig in the Kitchen. Thankfully, I don't suffer from food allergies and among the modifications I have made are using eggs instead of egg substitute.
