Crispy, Cheesy, Mixed Green Quinoa Cakes (Gluten Free)
Makes: 10 cakes
2 cups quinoa, cooked (I use TruRoots Sprouted Quinoa)
1 egg, beaten
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp cayenne
1 tsp dried cilantro
1 tsp Hungarian paprika
1 tsp sea salt
1 cup fresh mixed greens (I love Organic Girl Super Greens blend)
1/2 cup parmesan, shredded
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
2 tbs gluten free all purpose flour (I use Bob's Red Mill)
In a large mixing bowl, combine all of the above ingredients, stirring until all is evenly mixed.
Heat a skillet over medium heat & coat with coconut oil. Using ice cream scoop sized dollops, shape batter into patties with your hands & cook 5 minutes each side or until desired golden crispiness.
Let cool a few minutes before serving. Great on its own, or with a favorite condiment!
