How cute are these? I dearest making picayune meatless burgers. They are filled with and then much goodness. Quinoa, kale, cannellini beans, garlic….how can you become wrong? I’ve made similar patties inward the by, that tin can be plant on my make clean eating page. I always beloved to position these patties on salads, or only consume them equally a quick snack, fifty-fifty cold! These particular quinoa cakes I decided to make sliders with, and they’re just so gosh darn adorable. My mom together with I decided that we liked them even amend apparently, alongside approximately aioli drizzled over them, sans bun. The bun only overshadowed the flavor together with simplicity of these cakes. You actually tin’t crush them by themselves.
Makes ix-x two inch broad, i/two inwards. thick sliders

one/four tsp. dried oregano
1/4 tsp. salt

Remove mixture from food processor in addition to transfer to a bowl, in addition to run the mixture together alongside your hands. I constitute that this method worked best.
