Quinoa Patties

{vegetarian}

slightly modified from Super Natural Every Day

quinoa pattyIngredients:

  • 2 1/2 c cooked quinoa, at room temperature
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1/3 c  fresh scallions, finely chopped
  • 1 Vidalia onion, finely chopped
  • 1/3 c freshly grated Gouda
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 c Panko bread crumbs, plus more  if needed
  • Water, if needed
  • 1 tbs Devo Olive Oil Chipotle EVOO

Directions:

  • Combine the quinoa, eggs, and salt in a medium bowl.
  • Stir  in scallions, onion, cheese and garlic.
  • Add bread crumbs, stir, and let  sit for a few minutes so the crumbs can absorb some of the moisture. (If it’s too dry, add a little water; if it’s too wet, add some more bread crumbs)
  • Form into 12 patties.
  • Heat oil in grill pan over medium-low heat.
  • Cook 6 patties at a time.
  • Cook for 7 to 10 minutes, until the bottoms are deeply browned. (Adjust heat if needed.)
  • Carefully flip the patties with a spatula  and cook the second sides for 7 minutes, or until golden.
  • Remove from the skillet and cool on a wire rack while you cook the remaining patties.

Serve as desired. I topped with hummus, and a red pepper and artichoke spread.
