Quinoa is an ancient grain and one of the only plant foods that’s a complete protein. (A complete protein refers to oﬀering all the essential amino acids in a healthy balance.) Quinoa grains have a high ratio of protein-to-carbohydrate from the germ being about 60% of the grain. This recipe for quinoa patties, adapted from Sally's Baking Addiction, is extremely versatile. There are numerous ways to serve these quinoa patties — plain, in a pita, on a salad, on a sandwich, topped with sliced avocado, with a few dashes of hot sauce. Experiment and see what you like best!
Note: These keep well in the refrigerator for one week and in the freezer for two months. Simply microwave them whenever hunger strikes.
