I use all organic ingredients. These quinoa patties are OMG good!
- 1 cup low-sodium vegetable broth
- 1 cup dry quinoa, rinsed and drained
- ¾ cup water
- 3 tablespoons olive oil, or more as needed, divided
- 1 white onion, chopped
- 1 zucchini, grated
- 1 large carrot, grated
- garlic powder, or more to taste
- salt and ground black pepper to taste
- 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
- ½ cup oat groats, ground into a powder
Bring vegetable broth, water, and quinoa to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until quinoa is tender and broth has been absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes. Spread quinoa onto a large platter to cool.
Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir onion, zucchini, and carrot in hot oil until the onion is translucent, 3 to 5 minutes; transfer to a plate to cool.
Mix cooled vegetables with 3 cups of the cooled quinoa in a large bowl; season with garlic powder, salt, and black pepper. Pour eggs and ground oats into the bowl; stir until the mixture comes together. Divide mixture into 14 portions and shape into patties.
Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Fry patties in hot oil until browned, about 2 minutes per side. Use more oil between batches as needed.
