Chimichurri Quinoa and Corn Patties

Directions

  1. In a medium saucepan bring the 1 1/4 cups water to boiling; stir in quinoa. Return to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 8 minutes. Stir in corn. Return to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 5 minutes more. Remove from heat. Let stand, covered, for 10 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl combine eggs, cornmeal, chopped red onion, parsley, cilantro, oregano, garlic, 1/2 teaspoon of the salt, and the cayenne pepper. Stir in quinoa mixture and bread crumbs.
  3. Using about 1/3 cup mixture for each patty, shape quinoa mixture into eight 3/4-inch-thick patties. Heat a lightly greased griddle over medium heat. Cook patties, half at a time, on hot griddle for 6 to 8 minutes or until heated through and golden, turning once. Keep patties warm in a 300 degrees F oven while cooking the remaining patties.
  4. Meanwhile, in a large bowl whisk together vinegar, oil, black pepper, and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Add lettuce, tomato, and sliced red onion; toss gently to coat. Divide lettuce mixture among serving plates. Top each serving with two cooked patties.

I thought this was a pretty good recipe. I used red quinoa and it looked a lot like a burger. It ended up being more of a quinoa fritter, I just spooned it out onto the girdle and shaped it into a patty there. It seemed a little bland to me, and I used beef stock instead of water to cook the quinoa, so I would probably add some cumin next time, and maybe some feta cheese or a creamy sauce of some kind.
