I branched out and made some quinoa patties! They’re so good! A good vegetarian option for sure. Even my boys loved them and ate them up! I made extra and froze them for quick lunches on other days.
The recipe is a slight variation from Whole Living.
2 1/2 cups cooked
1/2 tsp salt
1 onion, finely chopped
1/3 cup shredded cheese
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup bread crumbs
Oil, to fry
Combine quinoa, eggs, salt, onion, cheese, and garlic. Add bread crumbs, mix, and let sit for a few minutes.
Form mixture into patties, I made mine about 3″ across and it made 25 patties. (Add more bread crumbs if the mixture is too wet, or more water if too dry.)
Heat oil in frying pan, and cook on medium-low heat until browned, approximately 3-4 minutes on each side.
