  • Author: B. Britnell
  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 4 1x


  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 2 cups of broth (veggie of chicken will work well)
  • 4 stems of kale, steamed and chopped (about 2 cups chopped up)
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 4 eggs, whisked
  • 4 spring onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • oil for the skillet (I use avocado oilbut olive or coconut oil will also work well!)
  • optional for topping: avocado, cilantro, extra parmesan cheese


  1. Cook the quinoa in the broth as directed on the packaging. Once done, take off of the heat, top with the kale (don’t stir) and cover for 8-10 minutes. Stir and then set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the quinoa/ kale mixture, breadcrumbs, eggs, onions, cheese, garlic, and S&P.
  3. Take about 1/4 cup at a time, for the quinoa mixture into patties in preparation for cooking.
  4. Over medium heat, heat about 1 tablespoon of oil in a large skillet and add in the patties making sure not to overcrowd them (I cook mine in 2 batches). Cook for 5 minutes on one side, flip, and then cook for an additional 7-8 minutes on the other side. You want a nice golden brown on each side.
  5. Once done, top with your choice of toppings and ENJOY!!
