Quinoa Kale Cakes by FashionableHostess.com

My two favorite ingredients meshed into one delicious side dish; the perfect party pleaser that covers your grains and vegetable categories! Enjoy!

Quinoa Kale Cakes Ingredients:

  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 2 cups water
  • 4 eggs, whisked
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 3 spring onions, sliced thin
  • 1 cup steamed kale, chopped
  • 1 cup whole wheat breadcrumbs
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Quinoa Kale Cakes Instructions:

Step 1: Make your Quinoa {which I did early this morning so I had time for it to cool before beginning the recipe!}. Rinse 1 cup of quinoa thoroughly and place the grains in a medium sauce pan with 2 cups of water. Allow quinoa to soak for 15 minutes. Then, with the lid on the pan, 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 cool to room temp.

Step 2: Grill your onion on the stove top and steam your kale. {Here is how to steam it if you don’t own a steamer!}

Step 3: In a large bowl, mix together cooked quinoa, eggs, cheese, spring onions, steamed kale, and breadcrumbs. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Let sit for a few minutes to absorb the liquid.

Step 4: Heat 1 teaspoon olive oil on a large skillet over medium-low heat. Cook up to 4 patties at at time, about 5-7 minutes per side. Remove and serve! {They are also great at room temperature!!}
