Recipe type: Main Dish
Serves: 12
  • 1 c. uncooked quinoa
  • 2 c. water
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • ⅓ c. parmesan cheese, freshly grated
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ tsp. kosher salt
  • 2-3 scallions, chopped
  • ¾ c. breadcrumbs (ideally freshly prepared. but plain/off the shelf is fine)
  • 1 c. kale, stems removed; steamed & chopped*
  • 1 Tb. olive oil
  1. Prepare quinoa according to package directions. When cooked, set aside to cool then fluff with a fork.
  2. In a large bowl, combine quinoa with remaining ingredients.
  3. Shape the quinoa mixture into small, flat patties.
  4. Heat a non-stick skillet on medium/high and pour in a little olive oil.
  5. When oil is hot, place 4-6 patties in the pan (try not to overcrowd them, so they can get crispy edges). Reduce heat to medium to avoid burning the patties.
  6. After a few minutes, flip each patty (add a bit more olive oil, if needed) and cook another 2-3 minutes.
  7. Remove from pan and cool on a wire rack (not a paper towel, since they may get soggy).
  8. Optional : top with applesauce, sour cream with herbs.
You can also keep this mixture in the refrigerator for a few days in order to make a few of the patties at a time.
