Quinoa is a seed that can be used as an alternative to rice or other grains. Quinoa originated in the Andes and is high in protein so it's great for vegetarians. These patties are really tasty and great to do if you have left over quinoa or need a BBQ option for vegetarians or celiacs. You can use regular breadcrumbs instead of rice crumbs if you aren't a celiac or gluten intolerant.


2 cups quinoa; cooked
2 Eggs
1 cup rice crumbs
3 scallions; finely chopped
1 tablespoon fresh oregano or sage; ripped
50 grams goat cheese; crumbled into chunks
olive oil

Original recipe makes 4



Place the ingredients in a bowl and mix until combined. Heat the oil in a pan. Using your hands, mould 1/8 of the mix into a flat disk shape and place in the pan. Continue shaping patties until there is no more room in the pan. Cook over a low heat for about five minutes each side or until golden brown (wait until they have cooked a little before pressing and flattening them as the can break if there is too much pressure). Serve hot with tomato relish.

* To cook quinoa, use the ratio of 1:2 quinoa to water and cook on a low heat until the water has dissolved (about 20 mins). To make two cups, about one cup of dry quinoa should be enough (one cup dry quinoa and 2 cups water). Quinoa can also be cooked in a rice cooker (which I find is the easiest way to do it).

Don't let the gluten free title scare you away. This recipe is fantastic and you don't have to be gluten free to try it. It is tasty. Yes, I said tasty and my husband agrees! Great as a side dish or main dish and pairs well with a strawberry, greens and goat cheese salad. Oh yeah.
