  • Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir onion, zucchini, and carrot in hot oil until the onion is translucent, 3 to 5 minutes; transfer to a plate to cool.

  • Mix cooled vegetables with 3 cups of the cooled quinoa in a large bowl; season with garlic powder, salt, and black pepper. Pour eggs and ground oats into the bowl; stir until the mixture comes together. Divide mixture into 14 portions and shape into patties.

  • Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Fry patties in hot oil until browned, about 2 minutes per side. Use more oil between batches as needed.

Cook's Note:

I let them cool and put them in the fridge so my family can have healthy snacks throughout the week.

Trying to introduce a new variety of healthy foods to my junk food junkie family. Made it just like the recipe except used two pressed cloves of fresh garlic instead. Served them with some fantastic Tzatziki I made fresh and what a hit! Can't wait to eat the leftovers for lunch tomorrow.;) Read More

only okay pretty bland by themselves. Never did find Groats but used ground oats instead. I did eat them all by putting them with other tastier foods and they added a nice crunchy consistency. Underneath a fried egg or underneath a dollop of cauliflower mash anything that has a gravy works well too. I had made canadian pork chops with dijon sauce and they were perfect underneath those.

These really are OMG good. The cooked quinoa gets toasty during the second cooking process and crunches slightly and bursts with that nutty flavour. Everything comes quite well together here. I played around with this recipe and it is quite forgiving. I had to use buckwheat flakes instead of oatmeal and ended up having to use about 4 times the amount written. Evidently the two have different absorption qualities. I found that after letting the mixture set a while it firmed up to create a sturdy patty. I baked some "meatball" sized ones in the oven at 175°C for about 10-12 minutes. I flipped half of them halfway through. Any way you cook them, fried or baked, they come out perfectly; fried was just more flavourful. I served these with an assortment of homemade sauces like tartar, mustard and bbq and they went well with any sauce you dipped them in as well as being delicious on their own. Thank you MaryLou Hunter for your very nice recipe. Read More

These really were yummy. I was just cooking for 2 so cut recipe in 1/2. I made guacamole to go with them. Also tried some with a little remoulade type sauce we had on hand. Seems to go with all kinds of flavors. May add a little red pepper too next time. Read More

I love these! I made the recipe as is except used ground up almonds instead of oat groats. I fried them in coconut oil and they held together and got nice and crispy on the outside. I am looking forward to playing around with this recipe. I halved the recipe and got 16 patties. Made this recipe again and added some leftover black beans and cumin love it! I did have to add extra ground up almonds so they would hold their shape. Read More

The patties were crispy and tasty and I'll definitely make them again. I modified the recipe slightly based on what I had on hand. I didn't have any zucchini so I used peeled & grated broccoli stalk instead. I put in two large cloves of garlic instead of the powder. Read More

I modified to fit what I had on hand. I excluded the zucchini added a small baked sweet potato based on the ingredients for a similar recipe used fresh garlic instead of powdered used only two eggs and used coconut flour instead of powdered oats. I refrigerated the patties before frying but had a little trouble keeping them together because I made them too big so I switched to broiling close to the element two minutes on each side. Sweet savory and hearty! Thanks for the inspiration! Read More

Delicious and a new favorite in my family! Followed the recipe exactly with fantastic results. You could top this with just about anything and it will taste great but we especially enjoyed it with salsa and sliced avocado. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe I will be making it often! Read More
