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

In This Recipe
Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl, except for the olive oil. Form small patties by hand with all the mixture.
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.
