Meatless Monday: Kale and Quinoa Patties

Kale & Quinoa Patties |
These kale and quinoa patties are hearty and filling, while still being healthy and delicious! Serve them on leafy greens or in between a bun if you want a 'burger' feeling. Drizzle with hot sauce, top with avocado, tomatoes, or whatever you'd like - the options to doctor these babies up are limitless. 

Kale and Quinoa Patties
Recipe modified slightly from Yummy Supper
Yields over 20 patties, depending on the size
  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 2 cups water
  • 4 eggs, whisked
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 3 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup steamed kale, chopped
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • Optional toppings: avocado, cilantro, lemon juice, salsa, poached eggs, etc.
  • Cook the quinoa according to your own personal method or the box
  • Mix the cooked quinoa, eggs, Parmesan cheese, scallions, garlic, kale, and breadcrumbs together in a bowl and set aside for 5-10 so some of the liquid is absorbed and the flavors meld
  • Form the mixture into baseball sized patties
  • Heat up olive oil in a medium sized pan (preferably cast iron) on medium heat.
  • Place 4-5 patties in the oil and cook them, about 7 minutes on each side
  • Keep doing this until all the patties have been cooked
  • Let them cool on a rack, allowing excess oil to drip off
