Who said superfoods are super healthy, but lack in taste? We bring to you a super cool, super yum superfood recipe, prepared with a healthy dose of quinoa. Try this Kale and Quinoa Patty to keep the diet in routine and stop those hunger pangs for something tasty.
¾ cup organic bread crumbs (regular or gluten free)
2 tablespoons organic coconut oil, plus more for frying
In a bowl, combine the cooked quinoa, eggs, chives, cheese, and salt. Stir well.
Add 2 tablespoons of coconut oil in a skillet and then add onions and garlic. Cook until the onions are soft, and then add the chopped kale. Sauté until the kale is soft and dark green.
Combine the kale and onion mixture with the quinoa, add the bread crumbs, and stir once again.
In a cast iron skillet, melt enough coconut oil to cover the bottom of the pan. Form patties out of the quinoa mixture (about 2 tablespoons for each patty) and fry the patties in the oil, about 5 minutes per side. Scoop onto a plate, and cover to keep warm as you continue to fry the remaining patties (you can keep your plate warm in the oven to avoid having any cold patties if you'd like).
