Serving Size
1 patty

2 ½ cups cooked quinoa

5 large eggs, slightly beaten

½ tsp salt

1 tsp cumin

⅓ cup chopped fresh dill

½ cup chopped onion

1 cup chopped kale (or spinach)

3 cloves garlic, chopped

⅓ cup crumbled feta

1 tsp baking powder

1 cup whole wheat breadcrumbs

½ cup panko crumbs

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. 
  2. Combine the quinoa, eggs and salt in a medium bowl. 
  3. To a food processor, add herbs and spices, onion, kale and garlic; process until finely minced.  Stir the onion-kale mixture into the quinoa. 
  4. Add feta, whole wheat breadcrumbs and baking powder, stir and let it sit for 5 minutes so the crumbs can absorb the moisture.
  5. Form into two-inch balls, roll in panko crumbs, flatten slightly and arrange on a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes, turn and bake another 5 minutes or until golden brown on both sides.
