Corn and quinoa fritters for both toddlers and parents

Some of the most popular recipes on this blog are those that include quinoa. So it’s great to see that we have been sent in another from our friend Camille. She has just started to make these for her beautiful daughter and they have proved to be a massive hit. Camille and Hubbie also enjoy these and make them a main meal by adding roast veggies on the side.

I made these on Sunday so we could all have them for lunch. I find that when we sit at the table, Miss F is a little more experimental! She was a bit weary at first but once she saw Mum and Dad devouring them, she gave them a go. She ate one, so that’s a successful meal in my book. 

This is a super quick meal to prepare and cook. And these can be frozen as well, so that’s an added bonus! 

1 big can of corn (or creamed corn)
1/2 cup of chopped capsicum
1 egg lightly beaten
1 handful of grated cheese
1/4 cup self raising flour - I use wholemeal
1 tsp of fried herbs
1/2 cup cooked quinoa

1. Cook quinoa following package instructions.
2. Mix altogether and cook spoonfuls over medium heat until golden and cooked through. 

It’s that easy!
