I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Quinoa Patties

Trying out some meat-free meals is challenging when you're used to "meat and potatoes" but this one I must say turned out yummy.  I served the patties with some green beans but I think they'd be really good as sliders too.

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
1 egg

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.
