Quinoa Patties Wednesday, Jan 9 2013 

 

 

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.

 

Quinoa Patties

2 1/2 cups cooked
4 eggs
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.

Zucchini Fritters Monday, Oct 8 2012 

I bought a large zucchini at a farmers’ market this fall. I shredded it all up and froze it into baggies to use as Zucchini Bread, and Zucchini Brownies. I also wanted to try making Zucchini Fritters, as I had some at a friends’ this summer and really enjoyed it. I followed a recipe from here, with just a few tweaks. It’s a bit plain in taste, but I prefer it that way due to my boys’ still-budding taste buds. 🙂  They ate theirs with ketchup, while I ate mine with homemade green ketchup! I’m glad there are leftovers to eat tomorrow for lunch. 🙂

Zucchini Fritters

2 cups zucchini, shredded
2 eggs
1/2 cup flour (I used wheat)
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1/4 cup onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4-1/2 cup cheese

Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Heat a frying pan, add some oil, and drop zucchini mixture by heaping tablespoonfuls, and cook for a few minutes on medium-low heat, until golden on each side.
