Southwest Quinoa Cakes

Southwest Quinoa Cakes Recipe
This healthy quinoa cake recipe is packed with protein from the black beans, eggs, cottage cheese and quinoa. We like to serve the quinoa cakes with a mouthwatering and incredibly easy blender salsa; if you don’t like the heat, leave out the chipotle pepper. We like the look of red quinoa, but any color quinoa will work just as well.

Sunny-Side Beans

Sunny-Side Beans Recipe
In this lovely vegetarian green bean salad recipe, eggs are baked over a bed of saucy beans in ovenproof bowls or ramekins. (The runny yolk mingles deliciously with the melted butter.) The dish uses a combination of green beans in the pod plus a cup of the beans shelled out—known as “shelly beans”—or baby lima beans or crowder peas. Crowder peas are any variety of field pea, such as a black-eyed pea.
