If you are looking for healthy lunch ideas these Spinach Quinoa Vegetarian Patty will quickly become one of your favourite vegetarian meals. You can eat them in many different ways. It makes amazing salad toppings or lovely vegetarian patties to make some fulfilling vegetarian burgers. I also keep this recipe for these days when I am looking for creative kids lunchboxes ideas. My girl loves them cold or simply rewarmed a few minutes in the microwave.
So, what do you need to make this Spinach and Quinoa patty recipe? Only 5 ingredients – or 6 ingredients if you choose to add some cheese which is optional if you are on a dairy free diet. I usually make these vegetarian patties with leftover of cooked quinoa. It is a nice recipe to use leftover of cooked supergrains. I also tried this recipe with cooked amaranth or a mix of quinoa and amaranth. All versions are very crispy and delicious.
I previously used to fry these patties into olive oil and recently I discovered how good it was to simply bake them 15 minutes in the oven. It’s much healthier than frying, less oily and easier to rewarm as well. This recipe makes a batch of 25 small patties. I baked all of them and rewarmed the leftover in the microwave for 3 minutes the next day. It tends to be softer when warmed up in the microwave. Next time I’ll probably freeze the extra unbaked patties and bake them when needed. I am pretty sure it’s ok to place the frozen patties into the oven without defrosting them. It will probably take a bit longer to bake but at least it won’t lose the crispiness.
I hope you enjoy this little finger food and if you are looking for others appetizer ideas you can check out the appetizer recipes on the blog.
