    How To Be Healthy When You're Not Wealthy

    I officially proved my status of 'Domestic Goddess of the Universe' this evening by cooking an utterly amazing dish, that was packed full on health-goodness. But why did I cook instead of waltzing into a perfectly nice (over priced) restaurant? Simply because it's cheaper. And everyone should treat themselves to a real dinner in, candles and all!
    My mouth was privileged to experience a Mixed Quinoa Burger topped with Organic Fried Egg and Sweet Potato Fries.

    You can enjoy too! (Measurements dependent on group size). First off combine red quinoa, mashed cannellini beans, bread crumbs, egg, garlic, chilli powder, salt and pepper. Mix well to moisten the ingredients and then mix in the shredded cheddar cheese. Mix well again and form into 4 or 5 equal burger patties (I made 8). Place on a plate and put in the fridge. After they've cooled and set just fry on either side for around five minutes.
    Place cut potatoes in a large bowl and drizzle with oil, chilli powder, cayenne, smoked paprika, salt and pepper. Gently toss with your hands or two spatulas to evenly coat. Spread on a baking sheet in one layer. Bake for 15-20 minutes, then flip and bake for 15-20 minutes more. You want the sweet potatoes to be crispy, but not burnt. If you want perfectly crisp fries I recommend spreading the sweet potatoes on a greased wire rack and baking them as directed above. But this way is a bit of a pain. Keep the sweet potato fries warm until ready to top on the burgers.'re welcome Earth!
