Crispy Quinoa patties is the best way to fulfill your cravings! Uncheat your cheat day!



  • 2 and 2/3 cups cooked quinoa

  • 2 Boiled potatoes without skin

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon pepper

  • 2 Tablespoons chopped coriander leaves

  • 1/2 small onion, finely chopped (about 1/3 cup)

  • 1/3 cup fresh cheese, grated

  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped

  • 3/4 cup gluten free whole grain breadcrumbs (or regular)1

  • 1/2 cup finely chopped carrot and zucchini (1/4 cup each veggie)

  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil, plus more as needed


  1. Combine the quinoa, potatoes, salt, and lemon pepper in a large bowl. Stir in the coriander leaves, onion, cheese, and garlic. Stir in the bread crumbs and chopped carrot/zucchini. Let the mixture sit for a few minutes so the crumbs absorb some of the moisture.

  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat, add 5-6 patties, cover, and cook for 7 to 10 minutes until the bottoms are deeply browned. Carefully flip the patties with a spatula and cook the second sides for 5 minutes, or until golden. Remove from the skillet and cool on a large plate while you cook the remaining patties. Add more oil to the skillet if needed between each batch.

  3. Serve plain or in a pita, on a salad, or in a burger.
