quinoa patty with poached egg

20 Jan

I’ve been getting my money’s worth out of the silicone egg poaching cups I recently purchased.  Plus this recipe helps me detox from the peanut butter caramel corn.

Quinoa Patty with Poached Eggs

  • 2 cups cooked quinoa, at room temperature
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 cup minced green onions (green part)
  • 1/4 cup minced onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup whole grain bread crumbs
  • Misto filled with olive oil
  • 6 poached eggs
  • salt and pepper

Combine the quinoa, beaten eggs, salt, green onions, onions, Parmesan, and garlic.  Mix in the bread crumbs and form the mixture into six patties.

Spray a pan with a Misto filled with olive oil and heat to medium.  Place patties in the pan and cook 4 minutes or until lightly browned.  Carefully flip the patties and brown the second side.  Top each patty with a poached egg, a sprinkle of Parmesan if desired, salt, and pepper.  Makes 6 servings.

      You can find it at all the local stores, usually in the rice aisle. Tacoma Boys has red, white, and black varieties. Costco sells a big bag of it 🙂

    I made this for dinner this evening and it was yummy! Even some of the skeptics were won over.
