If you are looking for healthy lunch ideas those Spinach Quinoa Vegetarian Patty will quickly become one of your favourite vegetarian meals. You can eat them in many different ways. It makes amazing salads toppings or lovely vegetarian patties to make some fulfilling vegetarian burgers. I also keep this recipe for those days when I am looking for creative kids lunchboxes ideas. My girl love them cold or simply rewarm few minutes in the microwave.
Soooo what do you need to make this Spinach and Quinoa patties recipes ? 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 those vegetarian patties with leftover of cooked quinoa. It is a nice recipe to use leftover of cooked supergrains. I also tried this recipe wih cooked amaranth or mix of quinoa and amaranth. All version are very crispy and delicious.
I was previously used to fry those patties into olive oil and recently I discover how good it was to simply bake them 15 minutes in the oven. It is 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 rewarm the leftover in the microwave for 3 minutes the next day. It tends to be softer when rewarm in the microwave. Next time I will probably freeze the extra unbaked patties and bake them when needed. I am pretty sure it is ok to place the frozen patties into the oven without defrosting them. It will probably take a bit longer to bake but at least I will not loss the crispiness. I hope you enjoy this little finger food and if you are looking for others appetizers ideas you can check out the appetizers recipes on the blog. This recipe is inspired by my spinach balls recipe.
