Ingredients

    2 1/2 cups / 12 oz / 340 g cooked quinoa, at room temperature
    4 eggs, beaten
    1/2 teaspoon fine-grain sea salt
    1/3 cup / .5 oz / 15 g finely chopped fresh chives
    1 yellow or white onion, finely chopped
    1/3 cup / .5 oz / 15 g freshly grated Parmesan or Gruyère cheese
    3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
    1 cup / 3.5 oz / 100 g whole grain bread crumbs, plus more if needed
    Water, if needed
    1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil or clarified butter

Directions

Combine the quinoa, eggs, and salt in a medium bowl. Stir in the chives, onion, cheese, and garlic. Add the bread crumbs, stir, and let sit for a few minutes sot that the crumbs can absorb some of the moisture. At this point, you should have a mixture you can easily form in to twelve 1-inch / 2.5 cm thick patties. I err on the very moist side because it makes for a not-overly-dry patty, but you can add a mroe bread crumbs, a bit at a time, to firm up the mixture, if need be. Conversely, a bit more beaten egg or water can be used to moisten the mixture.

Heat the oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium-pow heat, add 6 patties, if they'll fit with some room between each, cover, and cook for 7 to 10 minutes, until the bottoms are deeply browned. Carefully flip the patties with a spatula and cook the second sides for 7 minutes, or until golden. Remove from the skillet and cool on a wire rack while you cook the remaining patties.

Alternatively, the quinoa mixture keeps nicely in the refrigerator for a few days; you can cook the patties to order, if you prefer.
