YT Ambassador Brittany made these “burgers” for a healthy & yummy post workout snack!

Thanks so much to YoungTri Ambassador Brittany for sharing this yummy recipe with us! She paired it with cauliflauer… yum! A great post-workout meal.

Here’s what you’ll need to make your own (makes 10 patties):

Cheese and egg are optional!

  • 2 ½ c cooked quinoa, cooled
  • 4 c kale, cleaned, deveined, chopped small
  • 3 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • ½ yellow onion, diced small
  • ½ c chives, chopped
  • ½ c Parmesan, grated
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¾ c finely ground bread crumbs (use gluten free breadcrumbs to make this dish gluten free)
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil plus more for frying

Put it all together!

  1. Combine quinoa, eggs, Parmesan, chives and salt in medium mixing bowl.
  2. Heat 2 Tbsp olive oil in skillet on medium heat then sweat onions and garlic, approximately 3 minutes. Add kale to skillet and cook until kale is bright green and soft.
  3. Add kale mixture to quinoa mixture, then add breadcrumbs and stir to combine.
  4. Place clean skillet on medium heat and add enough oil to coat bottom of pan.
  5. Form patties using ½ c of quinoa mixture and place patties in skillet being careful not to splash hot oil or overcrowd the pan. Fry until golden brown on each side, approximately 5 minutes per side.
  6. Remove patties, drain on paper towel and serve.
