Vegan Quinoa Patties

February 19, 2015


One of my passions is to cook and share recipes for healthy, nourishing food.  This is a recipe I found on, which is an excellent site for vegan nutrition.  Although this recipe is vegan, I believe non-vegans as well as vegans will find these patties quite satisfying.  These patties are lightly spiced with curry and packed with protein.  They have become a regular in our house!  I like to top them with vegan yogurt or regular organic yogurt.


Give them a try and let me know what you think!
