What a great way to have your kids eating salmon and quinoa, pronounced (“keen-wah”). If you haven't tried quinoa yet, here are a few reasons why you should incorporate it in most of our meals. Quinoa is naturally gluten-free and loaded vitamins ans minerals. It is one of only a few plant foods that are considered a complete protein and comprised of all pernine essential amino acids. Quinoa also has a high protein to carbohydrate ratio when compared to other grain products.
When preparing this dish you have 2 options, you can pan fry it or bake it. Both ways will be a hit for kids and adults! Enjoy!
As vegetarians(or not), we need to add protein to our bodies. The following recipe is "pumped" with plant-based proteins from beans, seeds and oats. As a vegetarian, this is one of my to go recipes when I want a burger (you don't need to be vegetarian in order to savor this baby!). At The Real Food Academy, we have also made this recipe with hundreds of kids and just after we got their seal of approval (kids can be harsh recipe judges) we decided on going public with it! TIP: Serve it with our Sweet and Tangy Coleslaw with Apples
and top it with avocado slices and sprouts. Next time you have a gathering your guest will be impressed with your new plant-based burger!
