Quinoa Week: Quinoa Fritters

Quinoa Fritters
from thehounoursystem.com
makes 12 fritters

1 Cup Quinoa
1 Cup Shredded Parmesan Cheese
6 Scallions, Finely Chopped
2 Eggs
3 Tablespoons Flour
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil

Cook quinoa according to package directions.  Let cool.  In a medium mixing bowl mix quinoa, Parmesan, scallions, eggs, and flour.  Heat olive oil in a medium skillet over medium high heat.  Pack quinoa mixture into 1/3 cup measuring cups.  Drop mixture into heated oil and press down so it makes a patty.  Don't overcrowd the skillet because the fritters are fragile.  Cook for 5 minutes per side.  Garnish with extra Parmesan and scallions, if desired.

These fritters are a great alternative to boring potatoes as a side or you can even have them for a light lunch with a salad.  Or throw them on a bun and call it a veggie burger!  I've been making a few at a time, keeping the extra "batter" in the fridge until we're ready for another batch!
