I know I promised you this quinoa patties recipe yesterday, but I was so busy and tired that as soon as I got home, I just wanted to lay down and do nothing :). So, here’s the recipe, you can make this today for the Sunday lunch with your family.

These quinoa patties with feta cheese are super-easy to make! Actually, all veggie patties are super-easy to make 😀 All you have to do is mix the ingredients and quickly cook the patties.

I have to admit, this was the first time I cooked with quinoa. I had a bag of quinoa in the kitchen for a very long time, but never had the “courage” to try it out!  It was something new and I had no idea how to cook it. The combination between quinoa, feta cheese, and olives is amazing! You’ll have to try it and see for yourself!

  2. Made these today. Delicious! Thank you for this recipe. I think it would be a great side dish also.

    1. It’s not that much cheese – only 50g. I used 1 cup of quinoa which is mor ethan enough for 15+ patties. It will get fluffy when boiled.

  3. Thank you for your recipies
    It is the first time i have knew about quinoa patties i am going to make them today for my daughter who is allergic to glutten

  4. I’ve made these at least 6 times so far…..LOVE them!! I serve them over a bed of fresh spinach with a drizzle of good olive oil.

  5. I’ve made these twice already! They are simply delicious. I used to make quinoa muffins with lots of chopped vegetables (carrots, peppers, mushrooms, whatever it was on hand) but this gives the whole idea a new twist. I don’t know how it never crossed my mind to add olives. They’re always there in the fridge in a big jar!

    1. I’m so happy to hear that Monica! I’ll make quinoa muffins soon, what a great idea you gave me! 😀

    1. Pentru mine a fost prima oara cand am gatit cu quinoa si pur si simplu m-am indragostit de ea! 😀 Sper sa iti placa! Te astept cu un comentariu dupa sa imi spui cum ti-a iesit 🙂

  6. I love your recipe for quinoa burgers. We are huge olive fans. So simple and yet so tasty. I hope you are a quinoa fan now. Love the photograph.
