Give these delicious patties a try the next time you have leftover quinoa. Other vegetables can stand in for the carrots and zucchini – consider asparagus or broccoli. This great, simple recipe makes 12 Parmesan quinoa patties.

Quinoa Patties Ingredients

  • 3 cups quinoa, cooked
  • ½ cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • ½ cup non- or low fat plain Greek yogurt

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

Quinoa Patties Directions
