You can serve these patties as a veggie burger on a bun or use one to top a salad of mixed greens. Lemon, parsley, avocado and/or salsa make tasty garnishes.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 2 cups filtered water
  • 4 Large pasture-raised eggs (whisked)
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese (shredded)
  • 3 Large scallions (sliced thin)
  • 3 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 cup steamed swiss chard or kale (chopped)
  • 1 cup gluten-free breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

Note

You can serve these patties as a veggie burger on a bun or use one to top a salad of mixed greens.  Lemon, parsley, avocado and/or salsa make tasty garnishes.

Directions

Step 1
Rinse 1 cup of quinoa thoroughly and place the grains in a medium sauce pan with 2 cups of water. Allow quinoa to soak for 15 minutes. Then, with the lid on the pan, bring the water to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Cook until quinoa is tender and has absorbed the liquid - about 15-20 minutes. Let cool to room temperature.
Step 2
In a large bowl, mix together cooked quinoa, eggs, Parmesan cheese, scallions, garlic, salt, steamed chard or kale, and breadcrumbs. Let everything sit for a few minutes to absorb the liquid. Form patties.
Step 3
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Cook up to 6 patties at at time (don't overcrowd the pan). Cover the pan and let the patties cook for 7-10 minutes until they are a deep rich brown. Flip and cook the other side for another 7-10 minutes until both sides are nice and brown. Let patties rest on a cooling rack while you finish the next batch.
