Quinoa And Spinach Patties

Quinoa And Spinach Patties

1 cup uncooked quinoa2 cups water
4 eggs, whisked
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
3 large scallions, sliced thin
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup steamed spinach, chopped (frozen is fine)
1 cup plain breadcrumbs (for GF, be sure to use GF         breadcrumbs)
1 teaspoon olive oil

Rinse the quinoa thoroughly and place the grains in a medium sauce pan with 2 cups of water. Bring the water to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Cook until quinoa is tender and has absorbed the liquid, about 20 minutes. Let it cool.

In a large bowl, combine the cooked quinoa, eggs, Parmesan, scallions, garlic, salt, steamed spinach, and breadcrumbs. Let everything sit for a few minutes to absorb the liquid. The batter should be moist, but not runny. Form patties 1/4 cup each.

Heat the oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-low heat. In 2 or 3 batches, cook the patties covered for 8-10 minutes on each side, or until browned and golden.   Makes 14 patties.
