  1. You are speaking right to my “please keep the cookies the heck away from me” heart. This is the time of year when I long to “sheltering in place” against the onslaught – I do make an exception for banana bread & good apple pie…
    I love these (and I love that cookbook).

  2. I am so excited to try this recipe. I am a fan of quinoa and have a industrial size bag in my pantry as we speak. I have used in in place of rice, in soups and now this. Very excited and can not wait to try in on my family and friends.

  3. I’m jealous that your cakes stayed in tact! I tried these on 2 different occasions and after they turned into “hash” I have yet to revisit this recipe. Can you come over and make me these? Maybe that is the trick…

    • LOL! I think the secret is to pack ’em tight – press them between your palms, shaping the sides with your thumbs. They’re stubborn – you have to show them who’s boss! 🙂

    • I shaped the patties by pressing the mixture tightly into a 1/3 cup measuring cup, and that worked really well to compact it (I had no luck pressing the mixture with my hands).

  4. Thought about this recipe for a bit and decided I have to try it. I’ve never had quinoa before and wanted to try it, but hadn’t come upon a recipe that seemed easy. I love salmon patties, so I’ll give these a try! The outside crustiness is scrumptious looking.

  5. My neighbor is always trying to get me to eat quinoa, and finally this seems to a great way to try. Garlic and onions and cheeeeese. How can you go wrong.

  6. Wow! These look fabulous. I am always looking for interesting ideas with Quinoa and this is definitely something I am going to have to try. Thanks for posting.

  7. I just whipped up a batch of these tonight, and they are deeeeelicious! So easy with my leftover quinoa… I cooked a double batch when I made some quinoa & black bean stuffed peppers the other day. Now I have these patties that are crispy scrumptious; I’m in quinoa heaven. Thank you for yet another great recipe!

  8. These are incredible! I made them a couple times for my parents throughout December, and all three of us really enjoyed them. My mom was a little hesitant at first because she had had quinoa before and didn’t like it, but she loved them just as much as my dad and I did. Thanks for the great (and healthy!) recipe!

  9. These are delicious! I can’t have cheese so I omitted it, but I added olives and beets for fun. Then, I baked them in the oven at 400 for 25 minutes. I sprayed olive oil on them, flipped them halfway through and they turned out perfect!!! I am super excited to have this recipe in my repertoire AND to have discovered Soup Addict!!! Making quinoa salad next.
