Quinoa Patties

 Lately, I have been in a bit of a food rut and since we are trying to cut back on meat {kosher meat is $$$} I needed some healthy but frugal meal options.  Quinoa is a staple around here so I did some *googling* and came across this recipe for Quinoa Patties on  The Food Yenta’s blog. Enjoy!

  • 1 cup of uncooked quinoa
  • 1 onion minced
  • 4 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1 dried chili pepper, optional
  • 2 cups of water
  • 4 eggs
  • handful of herbs
  • 1 cup of panko
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • oil for frying (about a cup)

to prep: cook your quinoa. saute onion and garlic in about a 1/2 a tbl of olive oil. add 1 cup of quinoa and 2 cups of water. cook until water is absorbed and quinoa has split and is cooked.

  1. to a skillet add about a cup of oil and heat up
  2. meanwhile, in a medium to large bowl crack open and whisk 4 eggs. add cooked quinoa and mix.
  3. stir in panko, herbs, i used parsley, basil and a little tarragon. add a pinch of salt and pepper and start making your patties.
  4. when oil is hot carefully place your quinoa patties and start to fry. you don’t want to burn them, so a medium to high flame will work well.
  5. fry each side about 7-10 minutes. when patty is golden on one side it will be easy to flip over.
  6. if you are cooking in batches cooled patties in a warm oven.

We topped our quinoa patties with melted cheese and warm miranara sauce. {DELISH!}
