Goat Cheese and Spinach Quinoa Cakes

The best way to use up leftover quinoa is to make cakes out of them. They make for a fantastic appetizer or a savory side to go along with any meal. This version is crispy on the outside and melt in your mouth on the inside.


  • Prep Time : 10 min
  • Cook Time : 15 min
  • Ready Time : 25 min


12 patties


  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 1/4 cup potato starch
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 cup chopped baby spinach
  • 1/4 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes
  • 2 oz. Natural & Kosher goat cheese, crumbled
  • 2 large eggs, whisked
  • Pinch salt
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil


1. In a large bowl, mix quinoa, potato starch, garlic, spinach, tomatoes, goat cheese, eggs and salt. Form mixture into patties.
2. Drizzle olive oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add patties to skillet.
3. Cook patties until lightly browned on each side, about 5 minutes per side. Add more oil as needed in between batches.
