Quinoa and Pistachio Burgers | Polpette di Quinoa e Pistacchi

Quinoa and Pistachio Burgers:

I create this recipe by accident when I had 6 friends coming over for dinner. I wanted to prepare a quinoa salad with a vegan pesto made with pistachio nuts and basil leaves, but the quinoa was extremely sticky so I thought to turn it into burger patties. I love quinoa especially because it is a very good source of plant-based protein, vitamin B and magnesium. This super grain is also free from gluten, therefore it’s perfect if you have a sensibility to gluten or if you just want to avoid it.

The Perfect Breakfast Smoothie | Il Frullato Perfetto

The perfect breakfast smoothie :

I love smoothies, I have mine everyday for breakfast with different fresh and organic ingredients. I personally think that fruits like banana or mango can really make your smoothies outragously delicious. Normally I also add some home made granola (the recipe will be posted soon) or some quinoa flakes. The recipe I’m sharing with you today is made with a spoon of spirulina powder, spirulina it’s a real superfood. It is naturally rich in protein : 60 grams of protein in 100 gr of Spirulina powder, more than half a pound of chicken breast!!! Spirulina also contains calcium, magnesium , potassium , vitamin B and iron.
