Spring Herb Quinoa Patties.↓
Inspired by a recipe in Super Natural Every Day, by Heidi Swanson.
- 2 cups cooked quinoa (about 3/4 c. dry)
- 2 eggs
- 2 Tbsp chopped green onion
- 2 Tbsp chopped mint
- 2 Tbsp chopped parsley
- 1/2 c. grated strong cheese – we used an aged sheep’s milk cheese
- 1/2 c. bread crumbs
- 1/4 tsp salt
Combine everything but the quinoa in a large bowl and mix well. Fold in the cooked quinoa until it’s fully incorporated and the mixture is even.
Heat a large frying pan, with a drizzle of oil to coat, to medium high.
Using a spoon & your hands, form appox 2” patties with the quinoa mix and plop them into the hot frying pan.
Cook each side for approx 3 minutes, or until golden brown. Don’t disturb them for the first minute or two to prevent them from falling apart! Flip, and cook the other side for an additional 3-ish minutes, or until both sides are golden brown.
Serve with more freshly grated cheese on top.
Yield is 8-10 patties.
