I kept searching for a way to cook my quinoa that would make it more kid-friendly but would retain the sophisticated quality of this special seed. Why not quinoa patties? Don’t kids love to hold food in their hands? To keep the dish sophisticated, I used a combination of three colors of quinoa (though you can use any variety of quinoa you have on hand) and added ingredients that would appeal to any adult. Now I have the pleasure of watching little fingers reach for quinoa, something I never saw in the past. Yield: 10 to 12 patties  

Ingredients

Main ingredients

  • 1 cup quinoa

  • 3/4 cup rolled oats (gluten-free if needed)

  • 2 eggs

  • 2 egg whites or 1/3 cup Haddar Egg Whites

  • 1 ounce feta cheese

  • 4 cups fresh spinach, chopped (see note)

  • salt, to taste

  • pinch black pepper

Directions

Prepare the Quinoa

1.

Add quinoa to a pot with two cups of water and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil.

2.

Lower heat. Let simmer for 15 minutes. Set aside to cool.

Make the Patties

1.

In a large mixing bowl, combine cooked quinoa, rolled oats, eggs, egg whites, feta cheese, chopped spinach, salt and pepper. Mix until well combined. Refrigerate for 30 minutes, until set.

2.

Form mixture into 10 to 12 patties.

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.

Notes:

If you’re using frozen spinach instead of dry, use 1 and 1/2 cups of it, completely thawed and squeezed dry.

You can make it without the feta- the purpose of the feta is to add saltiness, flavor, and creaminess.
