I usually make half the patties with out the tuna/salmon for my dinner, and then add it in in the middle (so the husband is happy and has his meat) This is an option as well.
  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 2 cups water or broth
  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ cup chopped flat leaf parsley
  • 1 tsp Garlic Seasoning (my favorite I add to everything- see below)
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1 cup finely crushed Ritz crackers or bread crumbs or ¼ Cup flour alternative
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup freshly grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 can tuna fish or salmon (to add meat)
  1. Boil the broth in a pot and add the quinoa, then cover and turn on low till soft.
  2. Combine the quinoa, eggs, salt and pepper and garlic blend in a medium bowl.
  3. Stir in the parsley, cheese (if using) and garlic, and tuna/salmon (if using, drained).
  4. Add the cracker, bread crumbs or flour.
  5. Stir the mixture until combined. (If the mixture seems overly wet, add a tablespoon or two more of cracker, bread crumbs or flour).
  6. Let it stand for about five minutes so the liquid can be somewhat absorbed.
  7. In a large, nonstick skillet, heat the tablespoon olive oil over medium heat until it is hot.
  8. Take small handfuls of the mixture and form into little patties, about 1-inch thick, yielding about 11 or 12 patties.
  9. Add a single layer of patties and cook until the bottoms are well-browned, about 5-7 minutes, adjusting the heat as necessary to prevent burning.
  10. Flip the patties and cook about 5 minutes more until the second side is golden brown.
  11. Remove from the skillet and repeat with the remaining patties (adding a bit more olive oil, if needed).
  12. Serve warm or at room temperature.
