Quinoa Patties


21/2 cups cooked quinoa

4 large eggs (beaten)

2/3 cup fresh chives (chopped)

1 yellow onion (chopped fine)

1/3 cup parmesan cheese

6 cloves garlic (minced)

1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

1 cup bread crumbs

1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil


In a medium bowl combine quinoa, and eggs,. Stir in garlic, chives, onion, cheese and cayenne pepper. Add breadcrumbs and allow to sit for a couple of minutes.

Form into 1 inch patties. The mixture should be very moist. You may need to add water or extra breadcrumbs to moisten or make the mixture dryer.

Place a large skillet over medium low heat. Heat olive oil. Add as many patties as your skillet can handle, being careful not to overload it so that you have trouble flipping the quinoa patties.

Cover and cook for 8 to 10 minutes. If after 10 minutes your patties aren't brown turn the heat up and cook (carefully to avoid burning) until they brown. Flip and cook for 7 more minutes on the other side.

Allow to cool on a wire rack.
