Since I’m often on the go and need to fuel my body during the day I’ve been in search of some recipes that will give me some options that I can easily pack for a lunch or eat before or after a workout. These little Spinach and Quinoa Patties are the perfection solution! I was skeptical they wouldn’t taste that great, but they’re like little burgers. I’ve been eating mine with hummus!
Spinach & Quinoa Patties
Yield: 36 patties
Time: 20 minutes
- 3 cups cooked quinoa
- 3 eggs
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 large carrot, peeled and shredded
- 1 cup chopped spinach
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- Combine all ingredients (minus oil) in a mixing bowl. Let the mixture sit for 5-10 minutes to ensure everything is molded together.
- Heat the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Form small patties out of the mixture and place in the oil (about 2 mins each side). Place on a paper towel on a cooling rack.
Some recipes call for bread crumbs, but I wanted to keep this as clean as possible so I left them out and the patties held up just fine! You can also add green onion, parsley, etc. Some recipes also suggest adding parmesan cheese. So, play with it and make it your own!
