2 cups cooked quinoa (I used red)
1/2 cup finely diced broccoli
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
2 tbsps finely chopped celery
1/2 cup finely shredded carrot
1/4 cup Italian bread crumbs
1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 tsp Montreal steak spice
olive oil for frying
Heat 2 tbsps olive oil in a pan and lightly fry the broccoli, onion, celery and carrot.
Mix together with the rest of the ingredients adding the egg at the end. Don't you think the red quinoa makes it look more like meat? Form into small patties and place in the fridge to set for at least 1 hour.
Heat another couple of tbsps olive oil in a frying pan on medium heat and fry patties about 5 minutes per side until you've got a little char going on.
Even my husband the meat-lover said these were good!
Makes 12-14 two-bite patties.
