Vegetarian and gluten free, these easy quinoa patties made with goat cheese, lemon zest and mint are very refreshing. To serve with a yogurt sauce and a side of salad.
Veggie patties are my thing. I love making them and always try to come up with new recipes. One of the most popular recipes of all times on the blog is indeed my Spinach and feta quinoa pattie recipe that I published in the very beginning of Del’s cooking twist in 2013. Many of you have tried it and it has since become a classic in their house, as it has become in mine too.
Among other vegetarian patties recipes, make sure you check my sweet potato veggie burgers and my red lentil patties, that I usually serve with a delicious garlic-herb tahini sauce. The cool thing with patties is that it is quite easy to prepare as you mix everything, then you shape into balls and flatten with your hands. Then you can either cook them on both sides in a frying pan or bake them in the oven for a slightly healthier version. If you go for the second option though, your patties will be a little bit drier so I suggest you drizzle some yogurt sauce over.
Quinoa patties are maybe my favorite ones though, as there are so many ways to make them. Unlike my previous quinoa pattie recipe, this one is entirely gluten free (no breadcrumbs added, only quinoa). As for the flavors, I went for goat cheese that I paired with mint and lemon zest, giving a very refreshing flavor to the patties….
