thanksgiving menu: quinoa cauliflower patties


This year, I plan to be a bit ‘oddballish’ in putting together my Thanksgiving dinner menu. Since I’m not a fan of turkey, I’m still trying to figure out what to replace the main course with. In the meantime, here is something I want to try instead of the typical mashed potatoes and gravy. Call me crazy, but I like to keep things interesting:

I try to make a dressing or two on days I’m cooking so I just have them on hand when I need a quick meal. I don’t really have a recipe for the one pictured here, but it was a quick whiz in the food processor of garlic, tahini, lemon, chives, cilantro, olive oil and a teeny splash of white wine vinegar. If you’re the measurement sort, it’d be something like the dressing here but double the tahini.

  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 1 1/2 cups cauliflower florets
  • 4 eggs
  • 6 scallions, white and green parts
  • 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • sea salt and pepper
  • 1 1/3 cup sheeps milk feta
  • zest of one large or two small lemons
  • 1/2 cup roughly chopped flat leaf parsley
  • ghee, for cooking
