Quinoa Spinach Patties

I run a healthy living group on Facebook.  The other day there was a discussion about some Quinoa Spinach Patties from Costco.  They sounded amazing, but the ingredients were less than desirable.  So I decided to attempt a homemade version of Quinoa Spinach Patties based on the ingredient list.  They came out delicious!  This recipe is very easy to make too.

You can eat these Quinoa Spinach Patties on a bun like you would a veggie burger.  Or you can serve them as is with a side of veggies.  I topped mine with a little avocado and ate them with some roasted vegetables.  I am not a big bread fan, so I preferred them without the bun.  These patties would also be good on top of a salad or in a lettuce wrap.   So yum!  These quinoa patties are vegan and gluten free.

  3. I used 1-1/4 cup uncooked quinoa to end up with 2-1/2 cooked ... and I ended up with WAY more than 2-1/2! So, it was good that I had plenty for the recipe, plus another quinoa recipe. :) These are good little patties to start with (I got 12 from the recipe) for a meal. I'm glad I had read through the comments for ideas. We topped ours with feta cheese, tzatziki sauce (made w/Greek yogurt) and slices of tomato. Yum! The hubby stuffed his in a pita bread along with some cucumber slices, too. Fresh juicy oranges for dessert & we had a great dinner. Thank you!
