Easy  Quinoa Patties

Make a batch in under 10 minutes, that are a favorite meal to share with the kids

Ingredients

– Fully cooked quinoa  – Eggs – Shredded cheddar cheese – Broccoli florets (minced finely) – Italian-flavored bread crumbs – Unsalted butter or olive oil

Step 1.

Add all of the ingredients to a large bowl except the butter. Mix well with a spoon.  Use kitchen scissors to finely chop the top parts of broccoli florets to ensure it cooks through.

Step 2.

Add the butter to a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. When warm, add ¼ cup of the batter to make each patty, pressing down slightly into a flattened disc about 1 inch thick.

Step 3. 

Cook for 3 minutes, or until lightly browned, and carefully flip over with a spatula. By using a nonstick or cast iron pan, these will be much easier to flip! 

Step 4.

Cook for an additional 3-4 minutes and serve warm or let cool on a wire rack to store for later.

Step 5.

Serve warm with ketchup, warmed pizza sauce, Ranch, salsa, or guacamole. Really any dip would be delicious with these!

Storage

Let cool on a wire rack, then transfer to an airtight container. Store in the fridge for up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.

To bake the patties in the oven: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and coat a baking pan with nonstick spray. Place on the pan and bake for 12-16 minutes, or until lightly golden brown.
