Crispy, Flavorful Quinoa Cakes


Once I was successful with the spinach and quinoa patties, I knew I would have to make a parve version for those who would want to pair them with a meat meal. The sriracha sauce gives these just the right zing, making them extra flavorful. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do! Yield: 10 to 12 patties


Prepare the Quinoa

1. Cook the quinoa in three cups water according to package directions. Set aside to cool.

Prepare the Patties

1. In a bowl, combine quinoa, sweet potato, whole-wheat flour, scallions, basil, sriracha sauce, white wine vinegar, salt, and pepper. Refrigerate for 30 minutes, until set.
2. Form about 10 to 12 patties from the mixture.
3. Heat a skillet. Spray with nonstick cooking spray. Add patties and cook on each side for about five to seven minutes, or until golden brown.


Alternatively, you can bake your patties. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Add patties and bake for about 15 minutes, turning halfway through.
