How do you make quinoa and spinach patties?

Like I mentioned above, I love this recipe for meal prep. These are awesome to pack in Andrew’s lunches, or just to have in the fridge to warm up to top of salads, eat on a bun like a burger, or just eat on their own. Here’s how you make them:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400F and line a large baking sheet with parchment
  2. To a large mixing bowl, combine all your ingredients apart from the avocado oil. Stir with a wooden spoon to well combine.  Using an ice scream scoop (around 2 tbsp.) begin molding your patties.  First into balls then flatten to firm
  3. Using a brush lightly grease the base of the parchment paper with the avocado oil
  4. Place them on the baking sheet and bake for 20-23 minutes.  Flipping them halfway through
  5. While the patties cook, make the Aioli by combining all the ingredients into a small bowl and stirring to combine
  6. Once the patties are ready, enjoy immediately or as meal prep.  Serve with your desired amount of Lemon Garlic Aioli (recipe below)

To make the garlic aioli, it’s simple. All you have to do is combine:

  • Mayo
  • Lemon juice
  • Dijon mustard
  • Capers
  • Garlic

My not-so-secret ingredients

For these quinoa and spinach patties, you’ll notice there is a common name in my ingredient list, and that’s Chosen Foods. This brand of oils and dressings has been a staple in my kitchen lately, and I love to create delicious recipes with their products. For this recipe I used:

  • Their 100% pure Avocado Oil made with naturally refined avocados, ripened to perfection
  • Their Lemon Garlic Dressing which is great for salads, recipes, marinades, and so much more
  • Their Avocado Mayo which they have so many cool, unique flavors of. I used their vegan version, but they also have a ton of others if you are okay to make this recipe not plant-based 

Chosen Foods has fantastic products that I can trust, and I highly recommend stocking your pantry up with these for cooking or to have on hand for quick salads, or recipes.
