|I douse these greens in water every day, and arrange them in water. (It's a bit like flower arranging)|
Compromise is the word that springs to mind today. I made a Quinoa Log with broccoli and tomatoes. I used 3 eggs, which I like to cook thoroughly, to bind it; the compromise being that I don't like to overcook the broccoli; the answer being to cut the broccoli in large chunks, so that the eggs cook before the vitamins in the broccoli are completely frazzled.
|These big chunks of broccoli should'nt lose too many vitamins. (Sorry it's out of focus)|

Bring to the boil:
½ a cup of dry Quinoa
1½ cups of water
½ an onion diced
2-3 small mushrooms diced
Then turn it down to the lowest heat. Quinoa takes about 15 minutes to cook and the onions and mushrooms will be just about right by that time too.
When it's cooked, mix in:
75grams of broccoli (large chunks)
1 tomatoe diced
1 heaped tablespoon of soya flour
1 heaped tablespoon of porridge oats
½ teaspoon of bouillon mix
½ teaspoon of black pepper

Let it stand for half an hour to let the soya flour and porridge oats soak up the egg and bind the whole thing.
Grease the bottom of a plate or casserole dish and throw a bed raw porridge oats onto that. Then heap the ingredients on top of that; it should be quite stiff now because the egg will have bound the whole lot together. Sprinkle some raw porridge over the top and sides (it's a bit like pebble dashing the walls of your house).
