Quinoa Patties with Sweet Corn and Herbs

These quinoa patties have an amazing texture and strong flavors. They’re also easy to make and ready in just 30 minutes.  

I became the no. 1 fan of quinoa patties! I absolutely love them! The first time I cooked with quinoa was when I made these delicious Patties with Feta Cheese and OlivesThey were among the best veggie patties I’ve ever made and ate and they were shared like crazy on Pinterest!

I decided to cook more with quinoa, so I’m currently exploring new quinoa patties recipes. I got the idea to mix them with sweet corn and fresh herbs, and so these quinoa patties were made.

If you love quinoa, then you’ll surely like these quinoa patties too! They’re delicious and ready in just half an hour!

Looking forward to reading your comments! Let me know how they turned out 🙂

  • 1 cup quinoa boiled
  • 1 onion diced
  • 1 can sweet corn
  • 1 bunch parsley chopped
  • 1 egg or 2 Tbsp ground flax seeds (or psyllium husks)+ 3 Tbsps water
  • 4 Tbsps nutritional yeast
  • 3 Tbsps breadcrumbs
  • salt and ground pepper to taste


  • Mix the ground flax and water in a small bowl and set aside for 5 minutes to thicken.
  • Add all ingredients except breadcrumbs, in a large bowl. Mix well.
  • It may be a little watery, so add breadcrumbs. Start by adding 3 Tbsps and wait a little so they absorb the excess water. Add more until all liquid is absorbed and the composition has a paste-like consistency.
  • Grease a non-stick pan with some oil and add the patties. 1Tbsp per patty. Fry 2 minutes on each side.

You can try oats - blend them roughly before using.

Made these in the oven the other day and they turned out absolutely amazing. I plan on doing them again tomorrow. So good!!!

Sunt vegetariana si inebunita dupa chiftele(ca si tine). Am incercat majoritatea retetelor de chiftele de pe site-ul tau: chiftele de naut, de linte, dar reteta asta le intrece pe toate. Eu le fac mereu la cuptor ca nu mananc prajit si au iesit f f foarte bune. Le-am facut vegane(cu cartof) si s-a legat foarte bine compozitia. Multumesc pentru retele, sunt pe aceeasi lungime de unda cu preferintele mele. Parca le scrii pt mine :).

Ma bucur mult sa aud asta! :D Asa am inceput si eu sa fac la chiftelute, folosesc cartofi in loc de ou. Se leaga f ok. O sa re-editez retetele sa mentionez asta, ca le-am testat deja in varianta vegana.

in sfarsit am reusit sa fac chiftelutele. in pacate nu stiu de ce nu s-au legat deloc... le-am pus la cuptor, dar rezultatul a fost foarte gustos. stii care ar pute fi fost motivul pentru care nu s-au legat? am pus faina de in.

AA..acum am vazut ca ai mai lasat un comentariu in care ma intrebai de varianta vegana. Singurul substitut pt ou sarat e cel cu in intradevar. Raspunsul meu a fost cu "cred ca" pt ca nu am incercat chiftelute vegane cu quinoa. La cele de linte si naut am incercat cu in si se leaga bine. Poate exista o alta varianta de substitut vegan pt chiftelutele de quinoa. Ma voi intetesa :) Scuze, a fost greseala mea :)

Ai urmat reteta intocmai? E imposibil sa nu se lege, am refacut reteta de o gramada de ori :) Sa inteleg ca ai facut varianta vegana cu "ou" din faina de in. Nu trebuia sa pui doar faina de in ci trebuia sa adaugi si cateva linguri de apa in ea (asa cum am scris in reteta) ca sa se formeze gelatina. Asa ai facut?

I really enjoy quinoa and this looks like a great recipe to use the left-overs. Love the fact that you finish them in the oven so you do not have to keep an eye on them frying!

Thank you! Glad you like it! :) There are two ways to cook them: frying and baking. I tried both and they turn out just as good.
