Quinoa Patties

Serves 4 15 minute prep time

Quinoa Patties

Quinoa Patties to celebrate the International Year of Quinoa (we don’t make these things up — ask the United Nations). Chef Morgan has created a series of recipes that feature this nutrient dense all-star. Quinoa is packed with B-vitamins and protein and is also a great source of iron and potassium. We think it deserves a year of recognition!

The first in our quinoa-celebrating recipe series is Morgan’s delicious quinoa patties. Satisfying on their own, these also make a fantastic vegan burger patty. Enjoy!
