Quinoa and Spinach Patties
Recipe is adapted from Skinnytaste.com – Quinoa and Spinach Patties
- 1/4 cup uncooked quinoa
- 1 egg, whisked, another egg for on top of the patty if you want
- feta cheese
- 1/2 a leek, sliced thin
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1 cup fresh spinach
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
Rinse quinoa and cook according to instructions. Basically it cooks like rice. Let it cool when it is done.
In a large bowl, combine the quinoa, eggs, feta cheese, leek, and spinach. The mixture will be runny. Add oil to a non-stick skillet, and drop the mixture into the pan – almost exactly like you would a pancake. Cook the patties covered 5-8 minutes on each side, they’ll crisp right up and turn golden.
Serve with an egg on top however you like it but I prefer mine sunny side up so that the yolk breaks down into the patty. This dish tastes amazing and was a real surprise to me. Would highly recommend.
