Quinoa and Spinach Patties


 Vegetarian, meatless mondays, clean eating

Happy Monday! These quinoa patties are a delicious meatless dish, they almost make me think I'm eating a chicken cutlet or meatball, without the meat of course yet they are packed with protein and nutrients from quinoa and spinach.

I'm really excited about this recipe adapted from Heidi Swanson's cookbook Super Natural Every Day. Her original recipe calls for kale, but since I made them on a whim, all I had was spinach and that worked out just fine. My (meat-loving) husband even thought they were great.


These actually made enough for several meals, so I had one topped mine with a poached egg for breakfast which was super yummy, and the rest I served as a main course for dinner with a big avocado salad and quite felt satisfied. I can't help thinking how good this would be with melted cheese on top in place of a burger to make it more of a veggie-quinoa burger. May have to try that soon! These patties are inexpensive to make, can be adapted for gluten-free diets, they are vegetarian which is also perfect for Meatless Mondays and are made with clean ingredients. Hope you enjoy!!

Adapted from Heidi Swanson's Super Natural Every Day

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 2 cups water
  • 4 eggs, whisked
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 3 large scallions, sliced thin
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup steamed spinach, chopped (frozen is fine)
  • 1 cup plain breadcrumbs (for GF, be sure to use GF breadcrumbs)
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil

Directions:

Rinse the quinoa thoroughly and place the grains in a medium sauce pan with 2 cups of water. Bring the water to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Cook until quinoa is tender and has absorbed the liquid, about 20 minutes. Let it cool.


In a large bowl, combine the cooked quinoa, eggs, Parmesan, scallions, garlic, salt, steamed spinach, and breadcrumbs. Let everything sit for a few minutes to absorb the liquid. The batter should be moist, but not runny. Form patties 1/4 cup each.

Heat the oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-low heat. In 2 or 3 batches, cook the patties covered for 8-10 minutes on each side, or until browned and golden.

Makes 14 patties.

  1. These sound great! Did you use grated Parmesan from a can or freshly grated?

    1. I always grate my own, or you could use pecorino romano. I use whichever I have on hand.

  2. Looking forward to trying this. When I make quinoa I usually have some leftover at the end of the week this would also be a good way to use it up. I am guessing the egg and breadcrumbs help hold it together when it is warm so I may have to figure out a few additional steps for that. I also do a cook/steam method that makes it fluffier. That might not work with this recipe tho. Would love to add chopped mushrooms to this too.

    1. Actually this is perfect for leftover quinoa, and you can halve the recipe if you don't want to make as much. It doesn't need to be warm, in fact the quinoa should be cool.

      Delete
  3. YUM! These look great! I have been trying to jump on the quinoa band wagon, but everything I make doesn't taste really appetizing (e.g., buffalo chicken quinoa, ick). These burgers look great though. I've seen other recipes where they add in white beans for added protein, but I may follow this recipe and see how they do.

    1. I think you will really like these, they reminded me of the patties my dad used to make with leftover breadcrumbs and egg when he was frying cutlets. Of course, these are much healthier :)

    2. I cook my quinoa in broth instead of water. Gives it more flavor. If I'm cooking for a vegetarian, I use vegetable broth. Otherwise, I use chicken broth. Maybe that will help give your other quinoa recipes a flavor boost.

    3. Quinoa makes an awesome replacement for couscous in Tabouleh and really pumps up the nutrition.

    5. Make sure you are rinsing the dry quinoa thoroughly before cooking. I usually rinse it with 4 changes of water, agitating it against the strainer. You can get a 'soapy' taste if you don't rinse enough,

    4. I personally haven't tried freezing them.

    5. They freeze wonderfully! I let the cooked patties cool completely, wrapped in wax paper and froze in pairs. Just let them thaw, pop in the microwave or back on the stove and warm up!

  5. What could you substitute for the Parmesan cheese?? I can't do dairy ...

    1. It really gives great flavor, but maybe nutritional yeast?

    2. pecorino if you can handle goats dairy? i can't do cows dairy (parmesan) so I use pecorino for everything and its great!

    3. You can make your own vegan parmesan with cashews, nutritional yeast and a pinch of sea salt: http://www.veggieful.com/2012/08/vegan-parmesan-cheese-recipe.html

  6. These look super scrumptious. Quinoa is becoming a staple at my house and I can not wait to try these bad boys. Love the idea of topping them with an egg for breakfast, talk about a smart start. In love

  8. I'm going to add a third (fourth?) comment asking how these would freeze ;) I was also wondering how these would keep just in the fridge and how to reheat them so they were just as tasty? Looking forward to making these!

    1. I'm guessing they would freeze ok, you can also refrigerate and reheat in a pan or microwave.

  9. Looks great! Can't wait to give it a try but I'm not sure my husband will feel the same way as yours. Maybe just add more cheese?

    ReplyDelete
  10. i wonder if you could use Panko instead of breadcrumbs and I am also wondering the freeze question. I have a feeling I would be the only one eating... he may have 1 or 2.

    1. You can halve the recipe, and I think they would freeze fine.

    2. you can freeze them, Ive tried both ways, cooked, and raw. they were great.

    3. We rarely have normal breadcrumbs around, and I've only used Panko for this recipe...they've turned out great!

  14. love this, I make the same ones, but with kale instead of spinach, and they are so good!! I will have to try with the spinach now!

  15. I just made these for lunch. They were delish! I loved them! My mom used to make bread crumb patties all the time, so when you compared them, I knew I would love them! Thanks for a great recipe.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I am so happy you made these!! I tried using some other blogger recipes for quinoa patties in the past, and they turned out disastrous. Your recipes have always worked well for me, and the food is delicious. Not to mention, they keep me healthy in grad school. Thank you, Gina!

  18. Hi Gina, I've been following your recipes forever, but have adopted a vegan lifestyle over the past 4 months. If I take out the cheese and were to substitute tomato paste for eggs to bind, do you think that would work? Any other suggestions??? I LOVE QUINOA!!! I've been looking for a good patty!

    ReplyDelete

    1. Hmm not sure, not an expertise in cooking vegan.

      Delete
    2. I would try "flax egg" (ground flax seed and water) to bind and nutritional yeast instead of cheese for vegan friendly.

      Delete
    3. Chia seeds might work especially if you soak them for a bit first.

  19. Can you substitute couscous for the quinoa?

  21. Yum, these look great! That runny egg looks killer.

  22. Made these tonight! SO good!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Very tasty! I made them with kale and red quinoa since it was what I had on hand. One note for those who are using GF breadcrumbs- you might want to use a bit less than a cup. I made these using Schar's GF breadcrumbs and they came out incredibly dense. Might be better using home made, or a difference brand

    ReplyDelete
  24. Definitely going to try this! Trying to stay meatless and this is a great way. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I don't make much with quinoa. Any idea if these would work on the grill?

    2. Hi Karen, I grilled the patties and it was absolutely delicious. Try it!

    3. What about a foreman grill?

      Delete
  26. I made these last night. Very tasty. I didn't use 4 eggs, I only used two because I thought that 4 would make it soupy. I added all purpose seasoning salt. To top it off I used a combo of mayo and sriracha hot chili sauce. - Just a dollop.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Do you think I could make the quinoa with low-sodium vegetable broth instead of water or would that mess with the flavor too much? I also think I will halve the recipe.

    ReplyDelete
  28. These look awesome! Any ideas regarding what to sub for the egg for those that can't consume eggs?

    ReplyDelete
  29. Do you need to squeeze all of the liquid out of the spinach in order for them to stay together?

    ReplyDelete
  30. YUM these were delicious! Thanks for the recipe!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I use quinoa for soups and stews all the times till I see your quinoa/spinach patties today. I made them and love them. I added peppadews(minced), fennel, parsley, ginger, curry and added more parmesan cheese,too. VERY DELISHHHHHHHHHHHHH! Thanks, Gina!:)

  32. G'day! Unusual combination that seems to work, TRUE!
    Never cooked with quinoa, perhaps should put on my list to do!

  34. Made this last night but added a half cup of lightly smashed chick peas to the quinoa and 1/2 tsp of red chili flakes. Also took one of the commentor's suggestions and made a spicy mayo topping. These cakes were fantastic hot and cold and my husband (who thinks every dinner should contain meat)loved them and even packed left overs in his lunch.

  37. I made these for my family last night. My husband and I loved it and ate the quinoa patties with a poached egg on top. It was amazing. My kids sorta "liked" it ... not sure what to think of it... but then they had the idea to dip each bite into a little ranch dressing -- voila. They devoured it. That's kids for ya. They way I see it, whatever I can do to get them to eat quinoa and spinach is a-ok with me. As far as GF breadcrumbs go - I took four pieces of gluten free bread (Rudi's or Udi's), toasted each piece well, then popped them into my Vitamix for 15 seconds and I had gorgeous, fluffy GF breadcrumbs. This was delish. Thanks Gina.

  38. I made these last night and they are AMAZING!!! Nothing on this blog has EVER failed me and it's always a big hit, even for picky eaters. Thank you for this recipe, I will be making this again...and again...and again.

  39. I just made these using a blend of baby spinach, kale, arugula and green chard and I used panko instead of bread crumbs...they are delicious! I'm thinking maybe next time I'd like to add artichoke hearts as well! :)

  40. I made these tonight but subbed in crumbled feta cheese and I really like how it turned out

  41. IS the original recipe for one cup of Kale, did you just enchant the spinach one for one?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes, I didn't have kale but that would be perfect.

      Delete
  42. I was skeptical about this recipe but happened to have the ingredients on hand so thought I would give it a shot. This was absolutely fantastic. I cooked the quinoa in chicken stock and substituted kale for the spinach since I happened to have some lying around, but otherwise followed the recipe to a T.

    Thank you for all of the wonderful recipes!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Just made these and they turned out wonderful! I never made anything like them before, but I cooked them up, then made an over easy egg to top one off to try. Delish! Haven't given them to the husband yet, but even if he doesn't like them, I don't mind keeping them for myself!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I thought that they were ok. The garlic never really got hot enough to release some of the flavor and when you bit into the garlic it was VERY over powering. If I make them again I will use prepared garlic instead. Also, I will make them bigger, I had like 20 patties and I used 1/4 cup per patty like it said.

    ReplyDelete
  45. mmm these were sooo good!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Making these for the second time! Instead of buying expensive gluten free breadcrumbs (which I read ingredients to be corn meal!) I just used corn meal and added a little water or broth to soften it up a bit first. Also I like the patties smaller for a side dish, so I used a 2-T disher scoop, plop them on the griddle and flatten out a bit with the back of the scoop! So easy & delicious!

    ReplyDelete
  47. this sounds great!! btw-I have never heard of pre-rinsing quinoa before cooking it... I'll try that next time. I do have one question-my daughter enjoys quinoa and I think she would like this, but she is allergic to eggs... does anyone have ideas for a good binder to use here in place of the eggs?

  52. I made these amazing patties yesterday, I used your recipe exactly and the only thing I added was some wholegrain mustard.
    They are absolutely delicious, so easy to make and healthy too!!
    i can't wait to have one with a poached egg, I just had one for lunch with salad, avocado and some pineapple cottage cheese! yum!
    Thank you so much for all your hard work, I have made so many of your recipes and have loved them all, being from the UK I do have to look up some of the ingredients as we call then different things!
    Thank you again and please keep up the great work!

  53. How much is cooked quinoa is 1 cup uncooked?

  54. Finally made these. YUMMY!! Half way through cooking them, the spinach got me thinking about my new crop of basil. So for the 2nd half, I added a bunch of chopped basil. It adds another flavor level. Next time I'll do half a batch with a bit more garlic and more fresh basil and have some Pesto Quinoa and Spinach Patties. Happy Summer!!

  55. Made these tonight and they taste great. A tasty alternative to a meat patty. Thanks for sharing this great recipe.

  56. Do you think this will work using egg whites and not whole eggs? I need to watch my cholesterol so am trying to find healthy but good tasting recipes. This sounds delicious.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Made these tonight and they came out great! I used 3 eggs and it worked fine. I also found the ones in the later batch came out better (probably because the pan was hotter). Next time I think I'll add some garlic powder too. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  58. These are delicious! Instead of plain breadcrumbs, I used panko bread crumbs that were seasoned as "Asian sesame." SO GOOD. I highly recommend trying that out. It doesn't change the points value; it just adds some really delicious flavors.

  59. Did you include the extra egg on top when calculating the cals?

  67. I'm officially on the quinoa band wagon! Made these last week with spinach and kale (didn't have quite enough spinach, but happened to have some kale, which was perfect because I needed to use it up). They're so good, my finace even went back for seconds! I had mine with a slice of tomato and a dollop of NF Greek yogurt on top. Going to make them again tomorrow and pop some into the freezer

  71. Love your recipes. Looking forward to making this one but have a few question for you or anyone who has made these:
    1) is a 10 oz pckg of frozen spinach one cup?
    2) how can 1 tsp oil be used to pan fry 14 patties
    3) can these be baked instead of fried - wondering if I could get them to brown if I sprayed with oil oil spray and baked on a stone at 425 for about 20 minutes.

    Don't want to mess with the points if I need extra oil?

    1. I baked mine in muffin tins at 350+ for 20 mins. They held together very well and taste fantastic. I added carrots chopped up and used oatmeal rather than bread crumbs. Very good.

  72. Made these today & absolutely LOVE them. The 1st batch I cooked them with Olive Oil...the 2nd batch with Coconut Oil...I prefer the Coconut Oil, it added just a bit more flavor. I think next time I will cook the Guinoa in vegetable broth or chicken broth.

  80. I made the patties yesterday and we had some left over for tonight. I was truly impressed with them the first time around, but I liked them even better after they sat in the fridge for a day. I have added these to my cycle of healthy, quick meals. They are delicious! Thank you for posting!

    ReplyDelete
  81. I've made these a few times already - I often just make it as a hash rather than do the patties as that was pretty time-consuming.
    I love this! It's easy and makes a ton of meals that I can eat for lunch throughout the week. It's rare that I find a tasty, healthy dish to make that I find almost comfort food-y, and for me, THAT'S the key! My fiance hasn't tried them (not his style), but I bet even he'd enjoy them if he got over being weirded out by green things and quinoa.

    ReplyDelete
  82. These are amazing! I substituted Freekeh for the quinoa (Gina, if you haven't tried Freekeh, you definitely should!) and with the leftovers cut them like buns and made egg & cheese sandwiches! AMAZING! Thanks for another great recipe. I am down 110 lbs which is largely in part to having access to great WW recipes. Can't thank you enough!

  88. Thank you for this recipe. I made them on Ash Wednesday. I've tried other quinoa burger recipes in the past but this is the best one yet! My 10 month old had half of a patty and seemed to really like it too!

    ReplyDelete
  89. These are so so so good....and took me so so so long to make! From start to finish of cooking quinoa and spinach, letting them cool, prepping and cooking the patties took almost 3 hours. Thinking this will be a prep stuff ahead of time kind of recipe, and I will try baking them next time! Great vegetarian/clean recipe.. not gonna lie, I put sour cream and siracha on these...way too good.

    ReplyDelete
  90. I like to use baby kale for these too if I don't have fresh spinach. Also, I tried using the kale or spinach raw, and they come out just as good! And it saves a step! Thanks for the great recipe! My kids love them and they are now a staple in my house! I serve them with roasted red pepper hummus for dipping. YUMMM!

  91. Gina, can I just say I made these again for the 20th time and they are delicious.
