Quinoa and Kale Pattiies

Quinoa and Kale Patties

Did you know that quinoa is nature's super food? It's fast-cooking, highly nutritious and protein packed. It contains a ton of fiber, is rich in magnesium and contains iron. It also helps to prevent heart disease by reducing high blood pressure and diabetes. It's also totally fool proof and it cooks in less than 15 minutes... Wow!


2 1/2cups cooked quinoa
4 cups of kale
1/2 cup of chives
2 cloves of garlic
1 tsp. of sea salt
2 Tbs of olive oil
3/4 cups of bread crumbs
3 large eggs, beaten
1/2 cup of grated  Parmesan cheese
1/2 yellow onion


Combine quinoa, eggs Parmesan, chives and salt in a medium mixing bowl.

Heat 2 Tbsp of olive oil in skillet on medium heat then cook onions and garlic approximately 3 minutes. Add kale to the skillet and cook until kale is bight green and soft.

Add kale mixture to quinoa mixture, then add bread crumbs and stir to combine. Place clean skillet on medium heat and add enough oil to coat bottom of pan.

 Form patties using about 1/2 cup of quinoa mixture and place patties in skillet being careful not to overcrowd the pan.

Fry until golden brown on each side, about 5 minutes on each side. Remove patties and serve.

I usually add a little mustard on the top of my patties just to give them a little more flavor.
