Adapted from Super Natural Every Day by Heidi Swanson

Preparation Time 20 minutes
Cooking Time 20 minutes
Makes 20


2 and 1/2 cups cooked quinoa
5 organic eggs
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
3 whole meal bread slices, processed into breadcrumbs
1/4 cup chives, finely chopped
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 large Spanish onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoons fresh thyme, finely chopped
1 teaspoon mild paprika
sea salt flakes to taste
olive oil to pan fry


Put all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well with a large wooden spoon until thoroughly combined.

Scoop some mixture in the palm of your hands to shape a patties approximately 5cm in diameter and 1cm thick. This size will yield approximately 20 patties with the mixture you have. (You can make them smaller and thicker or large and flatter as per your preference.)

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large frying pan on medium heat. Gently place 4-5 patties in the pan and shallow fry, cooking each side for 2 minutes before gently flipping over with a small spatula to cook the other side. Repeat till all patties are cooked. Use a tablespoon of oil each time you start cooking a new batch of patties.

Serve hot or cold with ketchup and salad greens.


These are delicate patties and a tad tricky to shape as they may stick to your hands or fall apart in the pan. Gently handling will prevent them from falling apart. once one side is cooked, they become easier to manage and even flatten nicely for even browning.

If you find it impossible to work with them or shape them, try adding 1 tablespoon of plain flour to make them hold their shape.
