For a deliciously different alternative to mince pies try these festive quinoa and mincemeat cookies from recipe blog supremos The Cook & Him.
This recipe for deliciously succulent and juicy vegan bean and beetroot burgers comes from Claire Thomson's The Art of the Larder
, one of our favourite cookbooks. While the recipe originally called for canned black beans Claire recommends using any of our canned red haricot beans, whole fava beans or even carlin peas - and either flaked quinoa or naked barley flakes substitute well for the rolled oats.
These fantastic falafels are deliciously fresh, light and spicy, combining crunchy carrot with creamy Quinoa Flakes
and nutty Carlin Peas
. We love Fava Bean Falafel
but can't fault these for a change. This recipe was created by Niki of food blog Rebel Recipes
, who we met at the Soil Association BOOM Awards, where she carried off the award for best food blog - well deserved!
This scrumptious harvest cob, made with Wakelyns Stoneground Suffolk Flour, packed full of seeds and our Flaked Essex Quinoa, comes to us once again from friend of Hodmedod's; Sue Hudson.
