Serves: 8
  • 1 cup tri-color quinoa, rinsed
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons minced shallot
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ¼ cup minced mushrooms
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper sauce
  • ⅓ cup garbanzo bean flour
  • 3 tablespoons minced parsley
  1. Simmer quinoa in water and salt until softened and all water is absorbed, about 15 minutes. Spread the quinoa on a baking sheet to let cool to room temperature and let excess moisture evaporate.
  2. Saute the shallot in the oil in a skillet over medium high heat for about 2 minutes. Add in mushrooms and garlic and cook another 2 minutes, until all vegetables are softened.
  3. Stir together the eggs, cayenne pepper sauce, garbanzo flour, parsley. Stir in the skillet mixture and the quinoa. Form into 8 patties that are about ⅓ cup each. Let chill in fridge for about 30 minutes.
  4. Cook in a large skillet in a little oil for about 3 minutes on each side, until golden brown and cooked through. Serve immediately.
