I often make these delicious patties
using leftover quinoa,
and this afternoon I decided to
add poached eggs on top.
These are spectacular and wholesome...
Servings: (4)
Prep: 10 Mins.
Cook: 20 Mins.


2 large eggs
1/2 whole grain Italian breadcrumbs
1-1/2 cups cooked quinoa, at room temperature
1/2 teaspoon fine-grain sea salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/3 cup finely chopped red bell pepper
1/3 cup finely chopped red onion
1 tablespoon finely chopped sun dried tomatoes
1 large garlic clove, minced
1/3 Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon ground mustard
1 tablespoon dried parsley
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons cold water
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, for frying

Poached Eggs:
4 large eggs
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

Serving options:
--Lettuce leaves
--Dabs of sriracha sauce (Asian chili hot sauce)


Beat eggs in a medium bowl.  Add breadcrumbs and stir to combine.  Add remaining patty ingredients, except the olive oil. Stir to combine, and form into 4 (3”x1”) patties.

Heat olive oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium-low heat, and add the patties.  

Cook for 10 minutes, until the bottoms are golden brown. Flip the patties and cook the second side for 7 minutes, until golden brown as well. 

Place patties on a paper towel lined plate, and set aside.

Meanwhile, in another large skillet, bring 1-1/2” depth of water to a gentle simmer, and then reduce heat to medium-low so water is no longer boiling.  Add vinegar to congeal the egg whites more easily.  Working with the eggs one at a time, crack an individual egg into a small ramekin, then place ramekin near the surface and gently slide the egg into the hot water.  Cover skillet, and let poached eggs cook for 4 minutes. Lift poached eggs out of skillet using a slotted spoon.

To serve, place quinoa patties over lettuce leaves on serving plates, top with poached eggs and sprinkle each with a pinch of parsley, including adding a dab of sriracha sauce to each plate. ~ Enjoy!

Tip: Whole grain quinoa is the most nutritious of all grains and is high in fiber, iron, and 8 essential amino acids.
