Quinoa Patties with Cilantro, Kale, Lemon, and Avocado

september2013 (5 of 9)

These quinoa patties are so good! I’ve seen quite a few variations of this recipe floating around the internet.  We’ve tried it a couple of different ways at different times. Each time they are delicious!

  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 2 cups water
  • 4 eggs, whisked
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • fresh ground pepper
  • 1 cup kale, chopped with stems removed
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs (or panko breadcrumbs)
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil

Toppings: avocado, cilantro, lime juice, garlic or olive oil, salt and pepper

  1. Follow directions to make quinoa.
  2. Steam kale lightly.
  3. In a large bowl, mix together cooked quinoa, eggs, parmesan (optional), green onions, garlic, salt, kale, and breadcrumbs. Form patties for cooking.
  4. Heat olive oil  in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Cook up a few patties at at time.  Cover the pan and let them cook for 7-10 minutes until  a deep rich brown. Flip and cook the other side for another 7-10 minutes until both sides are nice and brown.
  5. Top the patties with generous amounts of avocado, chopped cilantro, lime juice, and salt and pepper. You could also drizzle a little garlic or olive oil. I LOVE tons of lemon on mine!
