Ingredients

  • 2 cups quinoa cooked, follow cooking directions on package
  • 1 1/2 cups kale coarsely chopped, center stalk removed
  • 1/2 cup sweet onions diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese crumbles low-fat
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs whole-grain if available
  • 2 eggs large, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients, except olive oil. Using your hands to mix the ingredients works best. If the mixture is too moist after mixing, add a little flour, a teaspoon at a time, until the mixture holds together well.
  • Form mixture into 8 patties and place on a parchment-lined or nonstick baking sheet. Lightly brush each patty with half of the oil. Bake for 15 minutes, turn over and brush with the remaining oil. Bake patties for an additional 10 minutes or until golden.
  • Allow patties to slightly cool while still on baking sheet. Enjoy!
