|Topped with walnut basil pesto and fresh tomatoes, the quinoa patties made an perfect light summer dinner.|
|The quinoa patties before baking on an oiled parchment paper lined baking sheet.|
Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with oiled parchment paper. Scoop 1/4 cup-sized balls of quinoa from of your cooking pan and flatten into patties. Place on prepared baking sheet. Wash hands and repeat until all the cooked quinoa is gone. Bake for 15 minutes and let sit for a few minutes out of the oven. Fry in an oiled pan until both sides are crispy.
I served my patties on a bed of lettuce and topped them with a simple chunky walnut basil pesto and diced local tomatoes. Simple, light, tasty, and delicious!
