Quinoa Patties Burgers


Quinoa Patties Recipe
I’ve started to hear more and more about Quinoa. My mom told me about a yummy soup she made and I’ve seen recipes floating around, and have heard just how good it is for you. Quinoa is gluten and wheat free, and is a balanced and complete protein. It is a complete protein grain, provides essential amino acids, and is easy to digest. Best of all, it’s very quick and easy to prepare. You can use it as substitution for rice, make stuffed peppers, soups and more. My first encounter using Quinoa was this Quinoa Patties Recipe, originally seen on Cooking Quinoa. Much of our meals revolves around meat, so I was excited to use this as a main dish instead of meat. They were simple, tasty and I will definitely be making them again. My boys really loved them with a bit of ketchup.  I didn’t have chives on hand, so I didn’t put them in, but they were just as tasty without them.

Serves: 8
A delicious and healthy recipe for Quinoa Patties
  • 2½ cups cooked quinoa
  • 4 large eggs, beaten (or Egg Subtitute)
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • ⅔ cup fresh chives, chopped
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped fine (can use dried onion)
  • ⅓ cup fresh Parmesan, grated
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper or Chipotle Chili Powder (optional)
  • 1 cup whole grain breadcrumbs (or gluten free bread crumbs)
  • 1 T extra virgin olive oil
  1. In a medium bowl combine quinoa, eggs, and salt. Stir in garlic, chives, onion, cheese and cayenne pepper. Add breadcrumbs and allow to sit for a couple of minutes.
  2. Form into 1 inch patties. The mixture should be very moist.
  3. Place a large skillet over medium low heat. Heat olive oil. Add as many patties as your skillet can handle, being careful not to overload it so that you have trouble flipping the quinoa patties.
  4. Cover and cook for 8 to 10 minutes. If after 10 minutes your patties aren't brown turn the heat up and cook (carefully to avoid burning) until they brown. Flip and cook for 7 more minutes on the other side.

    I’ve heard of Quinoa, but I have perhaps a stupid question. Where in the grocery store do I find it?
