Ingredients
  • 2 cups cooked quinoa (see note for cooking instructions)
  • ¾ cup shredded cheddar cheese (or other variety, if you prefer)
  • ½ cup low-fat cottage cheese or ricotta
  • 1 medium carrot, finely grated (OR 1 cup shredded zucchini, squeezed dry)
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons gluten free flour mix or tapioca flour, quinoa flour or regular wheat flour
  • 2 green onions, including white parts
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon garlic powder or 1 clove crushed garlic

Instructions
  1. In a large bowl combine the 2 rounded cups of cooked quinoa, cheddar cheese, cottage cheese, carrot, eggs, flour, green onions, pepper, cumin, salt, and garlic powder.
  2. Heat a frying pan, add about a tablespoon of coconut oil for frying. I have my pan quite hot to start with and then turn down as the pan continues to get hotter. I shape them with my hands using about ¼ cup of mixture. Fry until golden-brown, about 4 minutes on each side.
