RECIPE: Baked Kale Quinoa Patties

Difficulty level: Intermediate

2.5 cup cooked quinoa cooled
5 large eggs lightly beaten
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup fresh chives
1 cup finely chopped kale
1 onion finely chopped
3 cloves garlic finely chopped
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup bread crumbs
1/3 cup crumbled feta or other cheese

Preheat oven 400 F.  Oil one baking sheet. 

Combine quinoa, eggs, salt, chives, kale, onion and cumin. Stir well. Add baking powder and bread crumbs. Let sit for a few minutes to absorb moisture. Stir in cheese. 

I used an ice cream scoop to make the patties. You can also form with a spoon. 

Bake for 20 minutes. Flip over and bale for 5 more minutes. Yields 12. Serve hot, cold or room temp.
