Quinoa cakes with poached egg













Today  again is a new Secret Recipes Club and my assignment for this month’s is Betsy´s life  and I loved her blog with  amazing recipes and  was difficult choose  a recipe. 
 Anyway finally I choose this Quinoa Cakes with poached eggs because I love quinoa  and I have made  other recipes  with quinoa.
These patties the kids love them and specially my daugther cause she is veggie:)

I think these are perfect to breakfast or a lunch. I made about 8 and freeze them.
 You can see other recipes of Secret Recipe club in the link below.

The cakes

2 1/2 cups 340 g cooked quinoa, at room temperature
4 large eggs, beaten
1/2 teaspoon fine-grain sea salt
1/3 tsp. cracked pepper
1/3 cup  finely chopped fresh chives
1  onion, finely chopped
1/3 cup  grated Mozzarella cheese
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 cup  whole grain bread crumbs, plus more if needed
Water, if needed (Personally I dont needed the water)
 oil  to fry


Method
Combine the quinoa, eggs, and salt in a medium bowl. Stir in the chives, onion, cheese, and garlic.
 Add the bread crumbs, stir, and let sit for a few minutes so the crumbs can absorb some of the moisture. At this point, you should have a mixture you can easily form patties. if are so moist ,  you can add more bread crumbs, a bit at a time, to firm up the mixture, if need be.
Heat the oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium-low heat, if they’ll fit with some room between each, cover, and cook for 7 to 8 minutes, until the bottoms are deeply browned.


Turn up the heat if there is no browning after 8 minutes and continue to cook until the patties are browned. Carefully flip the cakes with a spatula and cook the second sides for 7 minutes, or until golden. Remove from the skillet and cool on a wire rack while you cook the remaining cakes. I cook only I needed and freeze the remaining cakes.

Poached eggs


Poaching eggs is one of the easiest, quickest, and lowest calorie ways of preparing eggs, as there is no added fat. Poached eggs make great additions to salads, such as the French salad Lyonnaise, or sandwiches, or just served simply with toast and a little salt and pepper.
Ingredients


Fresh eggs


1 to 2 teaspoons vinegar
Shallow saucepan with cover
Slotted spoon


Method


 First bring water in a saucepan to almost boiling. If the water is already boiling, lower the heat until it is no longer boiling. At this point, add one or two teaspoons of vinegar to the water, The vinegar will help the egg whites to congeal more easily.




Working with the eggs one by one, crack an egg into a small cup, then place the cup near the surface of the hot water and gently drop the egg into the water. With a spoon, nudge the eggwhites closer to their yolks. This will help the egg whites hold together.

 Turn off the heat. Cover. Let sit for 4 minutes, until the egg whites are cooked.
 Lift eggs out of pan with a slotted spoon.
In the plate put  the cake with salads and over the cake the poached egg.

Cakes de quinoa con huevos poché










Ese mes en el Secret Recipe Club me han asignado el blog de Betsy's life, un blog con muchas recetas y muy buenas, y me costó decidirme, al final elegí esta de cakes de quinoa porque me gusta la quinoa y los huevos poché así que encontré la receta genial, además es algo que se puede comer al desayuno o al almuerzo con ensaladas.
Para ver otros blogs del Secret recipe Club vean más abajo en el link.


Ingredientes
2 y 1/2 taza de quinoa ya cocida (340 grs.)
4 huevos batidos
1/2 cucharadita de sal
1/3 cucharadita pimienta molida
1/3 taza de cebollín verde picado fino
1 cebolla picada fina
1/3 taza de mozarella rallada
2 dientes de ajo picados finos
1 taza de pan rallado
Un poco de agua (no fue necesario)
aceite para freir los cakes o patties

Preparación


En un bol mediano combinar la quinoa, huevos y sal, mezclar bien.
Agregar los cebollines, la cebolla,el ajo  y el queso. Mezclar bien.
Agregar el pan rallado mezclando bien, mejor con las manos para que quede como una masa.
Dejar reposar unos minutos para que el pan rallado absorba la humedad.
Ya la mezcla estaría lista para hacer los cakes, si está muy húmeda se puede agregar un poco más de pan rallado.
Hacer las hamburguesas o cakes del tamaño que se quiera.
Ir dejandolas aparte.
Calentar el aceite y freir de unas 3 o 4, yo freí sólo las necesarias y las demás las congelé para usarlas despues.

Cocinar unos  7 a 8 minutos por lado a fuego medio, hasta que esten doradas por los dos lados. dejar enfriar un poco y servir con los huevos pochés y  ensalada.

Huevos Poché

Calentar agua en una ollita, cuando esté hirviendo agregar una o dos cucharadas de vinagre, dejar caer el huevo y esperar,a veces pongo la tapa pero solo un momento, cuando se vea bien cocido retirar con una espumadera con cuidado, en el plato colocar el huevo sobre la hamburguesa o cake y acompañar de ensaladas.
Hacer de a un huevo,  hirviendo cada vez el agua.
