I had some leftover quinoa from last week's Chickpea-Quinoa Salad (from Appetite for Reduction). I could have made a bowl of quinoa porridge, but I was in the mood for something savory. So I came up with this quinoa patty breakfast sandwich.
I didn't measure anything for the quinoa patties, but it's cooked quinoa mixed with a little ground flax seed and water. Then I added sausage-y spices: ground fennel, sage, salt, pepper and crushed red pepper. Just enough corn meal (actually it was masa, but it was so little it wouldn't matter) to hold it all together. Then a little masa on the outside to help it brown. Brush the frying pan/griddle with a little canola. Cook on both sides until golden brown. You might have to brush a little oil on the actual patties to keep the corn meal on the outside from being dry.
Lettuce, tomato, a mix of dijon/soy-free vegenaise with these patties on a chickpea flatbread. YUM!!
