I really like to use quinoa in my family recipes, it’s so versatile and with such an unique texture. Quinoa is a seed, not a grain, so naturally gluten free. It’s a nutritious food for babies and kids, a lovely source of proteins.
Today I prepared some quinoa fritters adding zucchini + eggs + oats + parmesan and creating a super tasty combo that the whole family devoured.
The fritters are a lovely baby led feeding idea too, starting from 8 months.
Yes, you can bake them in the oven instead of cooking them in the pan 😉 they will not come out as crispy outside as using the pan, but they will be yummy too! I would suggest baking them in the oven 400F/180C for 20/25 min, flipping them on the other side once half way.
The quinoa fritters are a delicious leftover too: I warmed them up the following day for lunch and they didn’t change texture.
