Quinoa & vegetables fritters

Quinoa is known as mother of grains because it has more protein than any other grain or seed. Quinoa provides all 9 essential amino acids, making it a complete protein. Its a good way to start your day with protein and vegetable rich entry. And its easy to make as well. Quinoa takes less time to cook in comparison to so many other whole grains and it tastes scrumptious too.
