Protein-packed quinoa and grass-fed Kerrygold Irish cheese are a natural pair that will lure your entire household into the kitchen with the aromas they create together. This whole grain vegetarian dish holds its own as a main course but also makes a delightful side to lean meat, chicken or fish.

Ingredients:
  • 1/2 medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 1/2 large red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 cup shredded Kerrygold Reduced FatDubliner Cheese
  • 1 egg plus 2 egg whites, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • Pinch sea salt
  • Dash black pepper
  • 1/2 avocado, peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 medium tomato, chopped
  • Olive oil cooking spray
Directions:

Combine onion, quinoa, bell pepper, Kerrygold Dubliner Cheese, egg and egg whites, garlic and chili powder, salt and pepper in a medium mixing bowl and mix gently with a spoon or spatula. Heat a large skillet sprayed with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Using a 1/2-cup measuring cup, measure half cup portions of the quinoa mixture and turn out into the pan, flattening each until 1/2-inch thick. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until bottom is browned and the cake is firm. Flip cakes over and cook for an additional 2 minutes. Top each serving with half the chopped avocado and tomato, dividing equally. If serving as individual cakes, top each with 1 tablespoon of chopped avocado and tomato.
