Ingredients:

- 1 cup cooked quinoa

- 2 cups finely chopped kale

- 2 cloves garlic, minced

-1/2 sweet onion (diced)

- 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

- 2 eggs (or flax eggs for a vegan option)

- 1/3 cup oats

-1/3 cup chickpea flour

- Salt and pepper, to taste

- Coconut oil, for frying


Directions:

1. Prepare the Quinoa: Cook the quinoa according to package instructions and set aside to cool.

2. Prepare the Kale: Wash the kale leaves thoroughly and remove the tough stems. Finely chop the kale leaves and set aside.

3. Mix the Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, combine the cooked quinoa, chopped kale, diced onion, minced garlic, chopped parsley, eggs (or flax eggs), oats, chickpea flour, salt, and pepper. Mix well until all the ingredients are evenly combined.

4. Form the Fritters: Using your hands, shape the quinoa kale mixture into small patties or fritters, about 2-3 inches in diameter.

5. Cook the Fritters: Heat a drizzle of coconut oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, carefully place the fritters in the skillet, making sure not to overcrowd the pan. Cook the fritters for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and crispy.

6. Serve and Enjoy: Once the fritters are cooked through and crispy on the outside, transfer them to a plate lined with paper towels to absorb any excess oil. Serve the fritters warm, garnished with fresh herbs or your favorite dipping sauce.


These quinoa kale fritters are best enjoyed fresh and hot, but they can also be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Simply reheat them in a skillet or toaster oven before serving.
