Recently a question was discussed on an online cooking community I belong to. Do you blog everything you make, or do you only blog foods you really like? I definitely don't, and don't intend to, blog everything I make. However, I began pondering this question again this morning as I was eating these Quinoa Corncakes.
Earlier this week I saw this recipe posted by Prevention RD. Since I've found my love for quinoa last year, and I knew I liked corncakes, I thought these were a no brainer for me and I needed to make them, soon. So this morning I set out to make them, following the recipe she posted exactly as it is.
Well, I'm not really sure how I feel about them. They aren't bad, I ate two as I tried to figure them out, but I can't quite figure out if I like them. They are definitely healthy, and I will finish eating the batch for breakfasts this week, but I don't know if they are something I'd make again. The quinoa adds a nice texture, but I think the whole wheat flour is overpowering the cornmeal. So why am I posting this you ask? I simply say just because I don't know how I feel about them, doesn't mean you aren't looking for a new healthy breakfast idea to try. Plus, you may really like them!
So if you do make these, let me know what you think. I think the next time I make my regular corncakes, I will experiment with adding quinoa to it and see how I like that.
Update: Prevention RD responded to my comment about the whole wheat flouring overpowering the cornmeal. We think this is due to the fact that I used whole wheat flour not whole wheat pastry flour as indicated in her recipe. So I am going to give these another try and will let you know the outcome when I do.
