Tilapia & Quinoa Cakes {Clean Eating Recipe}

The other night I was really craving some crab cakes! Since it’s hard to find fresh crab, I decided to improvise & make some tilapia & quinoa cakes! Super easy and delicious! Sometimes I get a little bored with just baked tilapia so this was a nice change!

    I made this for dinner tonight… absolutely delicious! Thank you for sharing your cooking knowledge with those of us that struggle. I ate it with some mango salsa I made the other day and just a touch of BBQ sauce. Mmmmm.

      I’m trying to figure out the same thing, my best guess would be….For one patty it would be 1 R, 1 Y and 1 B….could be completely off but that’s how I counted it…these are amazing!!

        Ya i would probably say 1 red, 1 yellow and 1/2 blue depending on how much cheese you add 🙂

      You could try adding more egg, that will help keep them together 🙂
