A great way to do this is in the form of a breakfast or brunch for her after wakes from sleeping in. A while ago I made some a href="http://www.closetcooking.com/2012/01/quinoa-cakes-with-roasted-red-pepper.html"quinoa cakes/a, basically a fritter made with quinoa, and I thought that they would also be great when made with different flavours such as asparagus which is in season right now. Although asparagus quinoa cakes are darn tasty all by themselves they are not enough for a special brunch so I decided to top them with some more asparagus along with some smoked salmon, a poached egg and a buttery, lemony hollandaise sauce! I am sure that these smoked salmon asparagus quinoa cake eggs benedict are sure to please for any special occasion!br /br //diva href="http://www.closetcooking.com/2012/05/smoked-salmon-asparagus-quinoa-cake.html#more"Read the recipe »/a
