Quinoa Patties

 So, my picture is not doing these patties justice. AT ALL. The thing here in Erie, is that the ball of light in the sky is not always around and cooperating on the days I want to blog ;)
 Last time we went to visit my family in Austin, my sister made these and they are so so so good! You know something is good when every single person in the house will eat them!! I usually prepare them over spinach lettuce with a poached or fried egg. You can also put them in a roll and eat as a delicious "burger", and honestly, I just eat them plain sometimes!!

*2 1/2 cups of quinoa (cooked as directed on package)
*4 beaten eggs
*1/2 cup chopped chives
*1 chopped onion
*1/2 tsp sea salt
*1/2 cup grated Gruyere cheese
*3 to 4 cloves of garlic
*1 cup panko
*extra virgin olive oil

-Cook quinoa as directed on package and cool.
-Combine the quinoa, eggs, salt, onion,chives,garlic and cheese.
-Add the panko
(I usually refrigerate for about 15 minutes so they firm up a bit)
-Form mixture in patties about an inch or so thick
-Heat oil in pan and add patties.
-Heat each side until brown (about 5 to 10 minutes depending on heat)

If mixture is too wet, add more panko.

I usually get about ten patties out of this. And I also add a bit more cheese because I love me some cheese :)


  1. My quinoa patties always fall apart - did you have any trouble keeping them whole? I'm definitely going to give this a try though

    1. Not at all! They didn't fall apart at all!!
