Broccoli~Quinoa Cakes

Well here is another great way to disguise Quinoa!!,,,,Let me just say I thought these were amazing!
With this recipe it is all about cooking everything first, letting it cool and then mixing all ingredients together before forming patties. If you are not fond of Quinoa, I am sure you could do these with Rice.... Here is what I did,,,Enjoy!

1 Medium Onion (diced and sautéed in olive oil)
1 Cup dry Quinoa (cooked in 2 cups water)
4 Cups frozen broccoli (steamed)
1 Cup seasoned breadcrumbs
1/2 Cup parmesan cheese
1 Cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 Eggs (beaten)
salt and pepper
oil for frying
In a large bowl add cooled Quinoa, onion and broccoli
add the rest of the ingredients
Mix well
Grab a handful of mixture roll in hands and form a patty
place in a hot skillet with oil
Fry until golden brown salt and pepper each patty and transfer to a paper towel lined plate to drain
You can eat these right away or put in an oven proof dish and cover with foil to keep warm in oven at low heat
This recipe makes 12 cakes
**Note,,,,you can garnish with parmesan or top with shredded cheddar and melt also!!**
