quinoa latkes

quinoa latkes by joanie

These quinoa pancakes made a tasty lunch. Yes, I ate all four. Don't give me a hard time. They were tasty, like mini garden burger patties, but better because they were crispy. I'd have to admit that the insides were a tad dry, but I guess that's what the aioli is for.


  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1/4 cup finely grated parmesan
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
4 pancakes


Crack the egg in a medium bowl and give it a brief beating. Then add the quinoa, parmesan, flour and onion. Mix well.

Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Divvy out the latkes into four generous 1/4 cup helpings into the pan, quickly using a spatula to press and shape the pancakes into pleasing circles.

When the bottom is golden, flip and brown the other side. Then transfer to a paper-towel to drain before plating the finished product.

Serve with aioli.
