Ingredients

  • 16 oz. mushrooms chopped
  • 1 zucchini grated
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil plus more for frying.
  • 2 cups cooked quinoa 3/4 cup dry
  • plenty of salt and pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper or more, if you like spicy!

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup whole wheat bread crumbs

Instructions

  • Cook quinoa according to directions.
  • Saute mushrooms and zucchini in 1 tablespoon olive oil with a generous pinch of salt over medium-high heat. Stir only once in the beginning, and allow liquid from vegetables to evaporate. Continue cooking until vegetables are tender and most of the liquid has evaporated.
  • Mix cooked quinoa, vegetables, and remaining ingredients in a medium-sized bowl.
  • Form 6-8 patties with the mixture and fry over medium-high heat in 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a nonstick skillet. Cook for 2-4 minutes on each side, or until browned.
  • Move patties to parchment covered baking sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes.
