quick and easy finger foods


quinoa latkes = quinatkes

2 1/2 cups COOKED quinoa
(which is about 1 1/2 cups dry i think)
4 large eggs
1/2 tsp fine grain sea salt
1/3 cup fresh chives (or combo of scallion greens)
1 yellow/white onion finely chopped
1/3 cup freshly grated parmesan (i had shredded)
2 - 3 cloves garlic finely chopped
1 cup bread crumbs (i used matzoh meal)
water, if needed
1 tbs olive or coconut oil

it's 1 to 2
so.. 1 1/2 cups quinoa to 3 cups water
get a good rice pot
put it on medium heat
a good wood paddle 'chunk' of earth balance
1/2 bullion cube
melt and mix
then add quinoa
then add water
bring to boil
then to simmer
lid on
timer on 
20 minutes or more

*mix it up*
grab a BIG bowl
combine cooled quinoa, beaten eggs, salt
stir in chives, onion, cheese, garlic
add matzoh meal
which will absorb some moisture 
if it's too dry add water

create little to medum patties
(this is a great place to hire a small helper :)
it's easier to make them all first & then get the fire going
so you can keep it going
i create them as i go 
grab a large heavy skillet 
pour a bit of olive oil 
turn to medium-high
make sure to have a plate with napkins 
or a paper bag nearby to soak up the oil
let the patties cool

they stayed well in the fridge
warmed them in oven next day
still crisp and yum
enjoy beauties
