These delicious and nutritious spinach and quinoa patties from Green Kitchen Stories are a complete source of protein and are full of flavor. They can be enjoyed alone with a dollop of Greek yogurt, served on a bun or in a bowl. Best of all, kids love them!

Gather

  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa OR 2 ½ cups pre-cooked quinoa, (black, white or red)
  • ¾ cup gluten-free rolled oats
  • 4 eggs
  • 7 oz feta cheese
  • 4 cups fresh spinach, chopped
  • sea salt & pepper
  • coconut oil, avocado oil, butter, olive oil or ghee for frying

Method

  1. To cook quinoa, place 2 cups water, rinsed quinoa and a pinch of salt in a medium-size saucepan. Bring to a boil, lower the heat to a bare simmer and gently cook for about 15minutes, or until you see small tails on the quinoa seeds. Set aside to cool.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, place cooked quinoa, oats, eggs, feta cheese, chopped spinach, salt and pepper and combine until all is mixed. Place in the fridge to set for 30 minutes.
  3. Take out the mixture and form 10 to 12 patties with your hands. Heat the oil in a frying pan on medium heat. Add the patties and fry for about 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
  4. Serve with your choice of greens, tomatoes, soft boiled eggs, beans, etc. The patties keep for 3-5 days in the fridge and freeze well.
