Quinoa and Corn Patties

Author Notes

I have 3 children and I'm always looking for easy, healthy, eat-on-the-go recipes. Several years ago, I found a great for quinoa and kale patties from yummy supper blog and have been making something similar ever since. I use whatever vegetables I have in the house or allow each child to pick their favorite vegetable and add that to the patties. They are a huge hit! I fry them up during the day and leave a large plate of them on the counter. The kids come home from school like little hungry monsters, devour the whole plate, and by 6:00 I'm fresh out of patties. This time I wanted something really colorful (for spring) and of course with corn (one of my favorite ingredients). Hope you and your family enjoy them as much as we do! —heather

  • Makes about 35
  • 3 cups cooked quinoa, make with 1/2 teaspoon Adobo powder in the water
  • 1 small onion, small diced
  • 3 cobs of corn, cooked and taken off the cob
  • 1 red pepper, small diced
  • 1 bag, frozen spinach, defrosted and drained of water
  • 1 cup whole wheat bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup fresh, grated, Paarmesan cheese
  • 6 eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 cup canola or olive oil for frying
In This Recipe
  1. Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl, except for the olive oil. Form small patties by hand with all the mixture.
  2. Heat a tablespoon of the oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. When hot, begin frying the patties in batches. Add more oil as needed. Don't over-crowd the pan as this can lead to soggy patties. Serve hot.
