Quinoa Patties

This recipe is all about quinoa and if you don't love quinoa yet, this recipe will change your mind. The patties require only a short list of pantry ingredients and come together in about 15 minutes. Packed with a delicious mix of textures and flavors, they have just the right balance of soft and crunchy. Curry and coriander add the finishing touches to this blend, giving it an aromatic and addictive flavor. This recipe is a great way to use up any leftover quinoa you may have in your fridge and it only takes minutes to prepare, so let’s not wait!

Quinoa Patties Ingredients

  • Quinoa - Quinoa is the base in this recipe, it's healthy, delicious and a great ingredient for any kind of patties or burgers.

  • Vegetable Broth - Instead of using a cube of vegetable broth to cook the quinoa, we tossed freshly harvested lovage, also known as wild celery, into the boiling pot of quinoa, as lovage has a very intense and similar flavor

  • Carrots & Parsley - Both of these vegetables are great and very tasty vegetable additions, but don't hesitate if you want to add other vegetables like spinach, beetroot, cilantro, celery, zucchini, etc.

  • Onions & Garlic - Garlic and onions are an absolute must in this recipe, as they add a tangy-sweet, herbaceous, and pungent flavor.

  • Oat Flour - Using oat flour is extremely beneficial as it both binds and keeps these patties together as well as adding moisture.

  • Curry Powder, Coriander Powder, Salt, Pepper - For aroma and taste!

Quinoa Patties Tips

  • Individualize - These patties are extremely versatile as you can use whatever spices and veggies you like.

  • Crispiness - Almost any patty or burger tastes even better when it's nice and crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, so let it cook a little longer to achieve that nice crispiness.

  • Shaping - We used ⅓ cup to divide the patty mixture into equal sized patties, of course you can also use a cookie spoon, 1/4 cup, or simply nothing at all.

  • Storing - These patties only take minutes to prep, then simply freeze the leftovers and serve as a quick dinner the next time you're short on time.
