Quinoa Kale & Spinach Patties

Quinoa is very healthy and a good source of protein. It tastes similar to brown rice or oatmeal. Quinoa combined with fresh kale, spinach, oats, onion, carrot, potato and Parmesan cheese is sure to rock your taste buds! This recipe is so flexible you could make all kinds of substitutions to suit your preferences and still get the same basic result. I made two types of patties, plain patties and bread covered patties. These patties can be served as a tea time appetizer or sandwiches with avocado dip. Tastes awesome.
