Ingredients

  • 2

    cups cooked quinoa

  • 1

    large onion, chopped

  • 1/4

    cup cheddar cheese

  • 1/4

    cup chopped chives

  • 3/4

    cup quinoa flour

  • 1/4

    teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • 1

    teaspoon sea salt

  • 2

    eggs or flax eggs (2 tablespoons ground flax seeds + 6 tablespoons warm water)

  • 1

    tablespoon lemon juice

  • Coconut or organic canola oil, for cooking

Directions

if using flax eggs, combine ground flax seeds with warm water and mix well. Set aside to thicken. (Skip this step if you are using eggs.) In a medium bowl combine quinoa, cheese, onion and chives. Add flour, cayenne pepper and sea salt. Toss until coated. Beat eggs and lemon juice together. Combine with quinoa mixture and mix well. Form into small balls and refrigerate for 15 minutes. Heat a large skillet to medium heat and coat well with oil. (Make sure you allow your skillet to get warm before adding quinoa) Cook for 5 to 7 minutes per side or until brown.
