Crispy Quinoa Patties


Ingredients

For the Patties

1 cup cooked quinoa

2 eggs beaten

Salt and pepper to taste

½ red onion finely chopped

½ cup mozzarella cheese

2 cloves garlic crushed

1 cup bread crumbs

Water as needed add moisture

1 tablespoon canola oil

For the Avocado Yogurt Dip

2 tablespoons cilantro chopped

½ cup yogurt

½ avocado extra ripe

Salt and pepper to taste


Instructions

Combine quinoa, eggs, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Stir in onions, cheese and garlic. Add the bread crumbs, stir, and let sit for a few minutes so the crumbs can absorb some of the moisture. Feel free to add water if the mixture feels too dry. Form the mixture into 6-8 patties.


Frying Instructions: Heat the oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium-low heat. Place add quinoa on the heated pan, making sure not to overcrowd the pan and cook until the patties are golden color, about 7 - 10 per side minutes.


Baking Instructions: Place the quinoa patties on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush the oil on top of the patties. Bake in a preheated oven at 400°F for 15 minutes, until golden.


To make the avocado yogurt sauce, whisk together the cilantro, avocado and yogurt. Season with salt and pepper and serve with the cooked quinoa patties.
