藜麥又名奎奴亞藜,英文名字 quinoa,讀作 Keen-wah,原產於南美洲安第斯山區,是印加土著居民的主糧,已至少有5,000多年歷史。

藜麥是近年深受消費者大熱追捧的健康食品,尤其是素食者。用法跟其他榖類一樣,其實它是種子,其口感帶煙靭,味道帶有淡淡的堅果味。

其豐富的營養價值和好處被列為完美營養食品 (superfood),被印加人譽為「榖物之母」(mothergrain)。它含豐富蛋白質,九種人體所需的氨基酸,維他命B,鐵質,鎂,奧米加三、纖維等。它的「四低」:低熱量,低脂,低糖,低鈉,不含膽固醇及麩質(gluten-free) 對維持心臟、心血管的健康,體重管理,對腸胃敏感者都很有幫助。但有泌尿問題人仕就要少吃,因藜麥和菠菜一樣,含草酸鹽,可引致結石。

在街外大家可見藜麥常用在沙津中,其實在屋企都很容易煮,用電飯煲煮都得,很方便,個人比較喜歡混入一小把加入平日食開的白米一起煮。

另外又可以用在其他菜式中,例如可放些在什菜湯中,又或可代替米用來當作炒飯一樣看待,最啱那些「唔嗅米氣」的一族,哈哈😜。

在這兒我想和大家分享的就是這個迷你藜麥蕃薯餅。家裏有本德文烹飪書,書名: VEGAN LOVE STORY, Hiltl & Tibits-The Cookbook. Hiltl (1898年創辨是全世界第一間素食餐廳) 和 Tibits 均為瑞士很有名的素食餐廳。

書內有一個藜麥薯仔扒的食譜,我靈機一觸做了這迷你藜麥蕃薯餅,可當正餐,小食或伴菜。

 

A few weeks ago, there was a new Facebook group created for Bloggers in Switzerland. One of the bloggers, Walking on Mom has suggested to do a Round-Up of family-friendly vegetables-based recipes, so I am contributing this Quinoa, sweet potatoes patties which I have adapted from the Vegan Love Story, Hiltl & Tibits Cookbook.

Hiltl is the world first vegetarian restaurant, established since 1898. It is located in Zurich. Tibits belongs to Hiltl group, it is casual-dining and buffet style, first Tibits restaurant was started in 2000, and now can be found in Basel, Bern, Zurich, Lucern, Winterthur and London.

It’s truly amazing to see how veggie dishes can be prepared easily and tasty can fill you up and that you won’t miss the meat a bit.

Quinoa is seen a lot in salads, I find this is another nice idea to consume quinoa, these patties can be served as main meal alone or as a side-dish or finger-food.
