Quinoa Patties

Quinoa Cauliflower Patties

These are very easy to make and so so delicious!  I always make a large batch so that we can have leftovers.  They never last more than a couple of days.  The nutty flavor of the quinoa coupled with the sweet full flavor of cauliflower makes these patties irresistible!
I was inspired to post this recipe after the fact so I didn't take very accurate measurements.  My only tip is to start with a half a cup of breadcrumbs and add more if needed.  Also, let the mix sit a little before making the patties.

1 cup (uncooked) quinoa, follow box instructions
1/2 small head of cauliflower, chopped small
1 cup chopped onions
1/2 cup grated parmigiano
1/2 to one cup whole wheat bread crumbs
4 eggs

Saute onion and cauliflower until cooked, add a dash of salt
let quinoa and cauliflower cool until lukewarm
beat 4 eggs
add quinoa, cauliflower, cheese and stir; add tspn of salt and pepper
add 1/2 cup of bread crumbs, if mix seems too loose add more 
form patties and pan fry till crispy on both sides
