Quinoa Zucchini Cake Recipe!

 The Monday Meal:

Every year during Lent, I struggle with thinking up healthy, meatless meals for Friday so this year I turned to all my favorite places for inspiration.  This recipe is an adaption from a recipe published by my favorite purveyor of all things awesome AKA Trader Joe’s. They packed some serious flavor and were a crowd pleaser all around.  Hope you like it as much as we did!
