An ideal way to use up any leftover quinoa, you might end up finding yourself making up pots of quinoa just to make more of these delicious little bites after you try them. They make for a fantastic appetizer or light side along with some tomato chutney or marinara sauce, a legume curry and a lightly dressed leafy green salad to fill out the meal.
I do enjoy vegan meals, but I just can't imagine life without my favorite cheeses. In this case, dill and parsley and a light spicing complement the quinoa to perfection, but when you slice into these cakes that are crispy on the outside but melting with cheesy goodness inside, the experience really couldn't get much better.
My only regret is not doubling this recipe, as I was sharing with friends, but I won't be making that mistake again. I don't have a huge appetite at any given time, but I bet I could have gobbled up all of these in one sitting. They really are a special treat to the palate and, as an added bonus, plenty good for you too.
