Cheesy Quinoa and Broccoli Patties

Posted on April 30, 2013
Hi, Everybody! Happy last day of April! This month has been filled with so much rain here in Maryland, but at least it means that everything is looking beautifully green outside, and spring has truly arrived! After all those months of everything being dark and gray, it’s so refreshing seeing green everywhere! I have a great quinoa recipe to share with you today! If you’ve never had quinoa before, you should try it out sometime! It is high in protein, fiber, magnesium and iron, as well as calcium. I know that that may make it sound too healthy to taste good, but this is a great way to prepare it! I’ve been seeing different kinds of quinoa patties everywhere, and so I came up with a recipe to suit my taste! These Cheesy Quinoa and Broccoli Patties are delicious; crispy on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside!
*Makes 6*
1/2 cup quinoa
1 cup water
5 large broccoli florets
1 small onion, diced
1/4 cup breadcrumbs
1/4 cup shredded cheese
1 large egg
Salt and Pepper for seasoning
Olive oil for cooking
1. First, cook your quinoa according to the directions on the packaging. I cooked mine by combining 1/2 cup of quinoa with 1 cup of boiling water, then letting it come to a boil, and simmering, covered for about 15 minutes. Once the quinoa has absorbed all the water (this shouldn’t take longer than 15 minutes), put it on a plate and let it cool completely.
2. Next, saute your diced onion until it’s soft and translucent. Set aside and let cool completely. Cook your broccoli until it has softened a little bit, then let it cool as well. Once the broccoli has cooled completely, dice it into small pieces.
3. Now that you have everything ready, in a large bowl, mix all the ingredients together, leaving the egg until the end. Mix well so you have a smooth, wet mixture that will allow you to make patties that will stick together.
4. Heat some olive oil in a pan, and make your patties. I made each using 1/4 cup of the mixture. Just make a ball out of the mixture, and squash it down a little bit. Cook each patty for about 7 – 8 minutes on each side on medium heat. You want the patty to develop a crust, but not to burn, so watch them carefully. Let cool for a couple of minutes before eating.
Happy Cooking, Everyone!

    • Jay February 13, 2015 at 2:03 pm

      These took ages to prepare and then fell apart on me.I am so disappointed they looked so good. I think I might try them again but whizz the onions and brocolli in a blender or use onion salt.The bits were just far too big to hold together.

      • ahomemadeliving February 15, 2015 at 3:28 pm

        Yes, the broccoli (or any other vegetables you may be using) can’t be too big, so that the patties hold together. Adding in an extra egg can help too sometimes, since that’s what acts as the glue in the patties.

        • Paul March 11, 2018 at 4:37 pm

          I use instant potato flakes for bread crumbs, I am gluten free. The potato flakes have little flavor and hold a quinoa burger orany kind of burger together without adding gluten.

          • Kyla Mcauliffe August 1, 2018 at 9:07 pm

            Awesome idea! I’m gluten free as well and this sounds healthier than buying gf panko.

    what kind of shredded cheese?

      You can really use whatever cheese you like in this recipe – cheddar, parmesan, or whatever else you like!

  • Olivia Johnson July 19, 2013 at 10:16 pm

    I just made these and there are so yummy! I used shredded colby jack cheese and it worked. I also didn’t have a small onion but used half of a large yellow one and it tasted sooo good. I’ll defintiely season it more next time, but they were perfectly crispy and delicious. My brother and dad even ate them. That’s saying something. Thanks for this recipe!

    • Olivia Johnson July 19, 2013 at 10:17 pm


    • Maria July 20, 2013 at 8:52 am

      Hi Olivia! I’m so glad you liked these quinoa patties! You can really add in whatever cheese/vegetables/seasoning you like, which is what I love about these! Thanks for stopping by to let me know! 🙂 Have a great weekend!

  • Amy August 6, 2013 at 7:46 pm

    This is a great recipe! Thankfully I had everything on hand tonight and was able to make them for my family. They were a hit with my husband, 3 1/2 yr old, and 9 month old. Thanks for sharing!

    • Maria August 7, 2013 at 4:47 am

      Thanks so much, Amy! I’m glad you and your family enjoyed the quinoa patties! They are one of my favorites, so quick and easy, but delicious at the same time! Thanks for stopping by, have a great day! 🙂

  • bevsq55 August 25, 2013 at 7:10 pm

    Can you tell me how much 5 large broccoli florets is? When I think if florets I’m thinking of when they sell them in the store as florets, which would seem like a lot for so little quinoa. I want to try this recipe. My husband had gastric bypass surgery and they recommend quinoa as a source of protein, so I’m always looking for quinoa recipes.

    • Maria August 25, 2013 at 7:33 pm

      About one small head of broccoli will work for these, or you can just use as much as you need, depending on how your mixture looks. Hope you enjoy these! 🙂

  • Ali August 27, 2013 at 8:24 pm

    Made these today with the 3 & 6 year old that I nanny… they were a huge hit! They’re begging me to make them for dinner next week already! Thanks for sharing 🙂

    • Maria August 28, 2013 at 8:13 am

      Hi Ali! Thanks so much for letting me know! I’m so glad you like the quinoa patties, they are one of my favorites too! So easy and so good! Thanks for stopping by! Have a great rest of the week! 🙂

  • Jennifer Schomer-Glatts August 31, 2013 at 4:38 pm

    What a great way to use leftovers from the week, so tasty and I love that I can “Veganize” it! Making these for dinner tonite!! Seems like they would make a great alternative for falafels! Thanks for the recipe!

    • Maria August 31, 2013 at 8:20 pm

      Thanks, Jennifer! I hope you love these quinoa patties! I love falafel too and you’re right, these are a great alternative and a great way to use up leftovers! Thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend! 🙂

    • Jennifer Schomer-Glatts September 5, 2013 at 7:29 pm

      These were sooo tasty! Thanks again sooo much for the recipe!! The flavors were amazing!!

  • MINUS September 2, 2013 at 9:31 am

    This is going on my food calendar for this week. Any idea how well they reheat? I’m thinking they would be a great choice for lunch on day. Thanks for sharing (and for explaining how much five florets are).

  • Loey September 21, 2013 at 8:17 am

    I tried quinoa for the first time recently and have since fallen in love with it and am always looking for new recipes. This looks amazing and I can’t wait to try it. I was wondering, however, what kind of cheese you use. Thank you.

    • Maria September 21, 2013 at 8:39 pm

      Thanks so much! I hope you love these quinoa patties! I like to use mild white cheddar cheese, but you can really use any shredded cheese you like, and change up the vegetables as you like too! That’s one of my favorite things about these… you can customize the ingredients and flavor according to your taste! Thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend! 🙂

  • julie September 30, 2013 at 12:43 am

    I made this tonight except I added cheddar cheese, Parmesan cheese, cauliflower, and I only used egg whites. I assume due to the lack of yolk it was impossible for me to get these patties to form and stay together, so I ended up just dumping the entire thing into a pan and making a little veggie/quinoa stir fry. It was SO. GOOD. Next time I make this I’ll probably make it as a stir fry again, but add some red peppers and soy sauce. Yum!

    • Maria September 30, 2013 at 8:25 am

      Hi Julie! A stir fry made out of these ingredients actually sounds really good! And yes, I think the egg yolk is what binds everything together, so I’m not sure that the patties would hold together without it. But you recycled the recipe well – I’ll have to try a stir fry too!! Hope you have a good week!

    • Callista Clark August 23, 2014 at 8:43 pm

      Another great way to get these to bind together is with flax seed “eggs”. 🙂

  • Jonelle McBride October 8, 2013 at 8:44 pm

    Just made these. I was having trouble getting the patties to stay together too, so I added another egg and that helped. I used parm cheese. They turned out good and were tasty! Thanks for sharing!

    • Maria October 14, 2013 at 3:35 pm

      Glad you liked the quinoa patties! Sometimes you do need an extra egg depending on how thick your mixture is. Glad they turned out well for you! Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week! 🙂

  • Angela Genzale October 10, 2013 at 6:07 pm

    These were so yummy!! Perfect use for my leftover quinoa

    • Maria October 14, 2013 at 3:36 pm

      I’m so glad you liked the quinoa patties, Angela! And yes, it’s the perfect way to use leftover quinoa and vegetables! I love making different versions of these. Thanks for stopping by, have a great week! 🙂

  • Viyamusic October 12, 2013 at 11:45 am

    I made these for dinner and they were delicious. I think I added more broccoli than you called for because I needed two eggs instead of one; probably for that reason it wasn’t as cheesy as I hoped so I will add more cheese next time. I chose to use green onion as that is what I had fresh and I added the spice tumeric for a little pizzaz and it worked splendidly! Thank you so much for this recipe.

    • Maria October 14, 2013 at 3:37 pm

      Glad you liked the quinoa patties! The addition of the green onion and tumeric sounds delicious! I love making different variations of these with whatever vegetables I have on hand! Thanks for stopping by, have a great week! 🙂

    Is there an alternative to the bread crumbs? Anything gluten free? Thanks! These sound delicious!

    • Maria October 14, 2013 at 3:40 pm

      Hi Colette! I’m not sure about a gluten free alternative for breadcrumbs, but let me know if you find one! Hope you love these!

    • Jen Bridges November 5, 2013 at 2:06 pm

      You can use gf bread crumbs that are made commercially, or you can make your own! Just put 1-2 pieces of bread in your blender/chopper/food processor and pulse until they are crumbs. This gives you fresh bread crumbs. If you want them finer, toast the bread first, or you could even toast the crumbs in a skillet after. You could probably also substitute gf cereals made into crumbs, such as gf rice krispies or chex. Good luck!

    • Jen Bridges November 5, 2013 at 2:07 pm

      These look fabulous, by the way, and I can’t wait to try them!

  • Chelsea P November 4, 2013 at 8:12 pm

    I am in the midst of cooking these now (first time quiona-er, here! )Wish me luck!! 🙂

      I hope they turned out great for you, Chelsea!

  • michelle November 6, 2013 at 4:25 pm

    Can you freeze the patties and reheat for later?

    • Julia Mandall June 12, 2014 at 6:40 pm

      Hi I am wondering the same thing- would you happen to know if they are freezable?

  • Mere Darling November 7, 2013 at 3:19 pm

    Hi! I did this the other night but I added rice flour instead of panko, and baking soda and baked them into six patties in a cupcake pan on 350* for 20 minutes. I wasn’t feeling something fried and I’m light on oil these days. The baked ones came out lovely! I topped with a Lemon Tahini Sriracha sauce. This recipe is versatile!

    • Maria December 31, 2013 at 5:56 pm

      What a great idea to bake these patties, and keep them even healthier! Great tip! 🙂

  • ADQ December 30, 2013 at 8:56 pm

    Great recipe !! Just made them for my boyfriend and me and we loved them. I used Parmesan/Romano cheese and they were very very flavorful. I was hoping we would have leftovers but we ate them all up !! Thanks 🙂

    • Maria December 31, 2013 at 5:57 pm

      I’m so glad you liked them! They are one of my favorites!! Hope you have a wonderful new year!!

  • Healthy Lifestyle Trainer December 31, 2013 at 11:46 am

    These look great. Do you know/think they’re firm enough to put on a grill. These would probably stomp commercially made veggie burgers if I could grill them. Thanks!

    • Maria December 31, 2013 at 5:58 pm

      Thanks! I am not quite sure if these would hold up well on a grill, but you could definitely try it! One reader said they baked them which could be a good alternative to frying/grilling them. Hope you enjoy these! Happy New Year! 🙂

  • Amanda January 3, 2014 at 10:46 pm

    I made this tonight with old cheddar and was blown away! These really held their shape and tasted incredible. I’ll definitely be making this again with new variations. Thank you for this versatile recipe 🙂

  • Andy Hollingsworth January 12, 2014 at 1:10 pm

    Thanks for the post, I made about 20 of them yesterday and they are even delicious reheated in the microwave the next day! I did spice them up a bit more than the recipe called for too.

  • Kim January 24, 2014 at 5:04 pm

  • Callista Clark August 23, 2014 at 9:02 pm

    GLUTEN FREE and VEGAN-ized version (contains nuts)

    First off let me say, what a wicked cool idea Maria! Quinoa patties. Mind blown!

    To modify this to be gluten free and vegan I made the following tweaks to this recipe. I used flax seed “eggs” to bind the ingredients together and instead of breadcrumbs I ran a handful and a half of peanuts through the food processor until they were breadcrumb sized (they’re also a soft and creamy-ish texture which is nice in the patties). Of course, I omitted the cheese, and I don’t really care for fake vegan cheese, but it could be added in. I went without.

    I did, however, take some of Maria’s advice and I sautéed garlic with my onion and also shredded some carrots in the food processor. I left the carrots raw until adding into the patty where they cooked a little in the frying processes but left a great crunch behind, yum, yum.

    Instead of mine being a cheesy broccoli bake (what I imagine the original recipe to taste like) my Callista-ized version were even more protein packed and like a veggie/grain loaf, but also AMAZING.

    I cannot wait to experiment more! I’m thinking that adding some thick coconut milk to bind and some fresh ginger and a splash of soy with the peanuts could make for an interesting Thai twist. Or, as another user mentioned adding some bell pepper and maybe even some pepperoncini and going for a spicy flair. Man, soooooo many possibilities!

    Thanks again Maria!

    • Callista Clark August 23, 2014 at 9:25 pm

      Oh! I should also add I fried them in coconut oil. Lastly, a thought I just had (after having finished making this meal, darn!!!) is that vegan could sub nutritional yeast for that cheesy flavor……

      Man, now I’m thinking about the cheesy broccoli patties for tomorrow night!!!!

    • Maria August 26, 2014 at 7:19 pm

      Callista, thank you so much for posting all this information! I’ve had a lot of requests from people asking about gluten free/vegan variations of these, and since I don’t cook gluten free or vegan, I didn’t have many answers for them! Thanks so much for posting all this info, this is awesome!!! Glad you enjoyed these! 🙂

    Dear Maria, thank you for your great recipe. I loved it! 🙂 I just started my own personal blog about my fructose malabsorption, where I’m sharing my experiences and recipes that are suited for fructose-friendly diet that I have to follow. I linked to your page and to this recipe and made my fructose-friendly version (no onion or garlic and alternative breadcrumbs) of it on my own blog: It’s in Dutch, but I hope you like it!

    • Maria December 12, 2014 at 5:52 pm

      Hi! Oh I’m so glad you liked these! I checked out your link, and they look fabulous!!! This is one of my favorite things about cooking – that everyone can be creative with the ingredients and substitutions to suit their taste and diet! Glad you enjoyed these, thanks so much for sending me the link! 🙂

  • Haldi January 21, 2015 at 9:42 am

    I wanted to ask if there is some suggestions to do it without cheese, for vegans?

    Best of luck!

    • ahomemadeliving January 21, 2015 at 10:23 am

      Hi! I’m so sorry but I don’t know about any vegan alternatives… I’m sure there probably is one, but am not really familiar with any vegan substitutions to be able to give you advice. Let me know if you find anything though, hope these work great for you! Thanks so much for stopping by!

  • Miranda January 21, 2015 at 8:33 pm

    Tried these tonight and they are delish! I doubled the recipe for our big family and told the kids they were cheesy/crackers bites (just so they would try them) and they loved them too! Great way to sneak in some broccoli and quinoa! Thank you for the recipe! Pinned to my pinterest!

    • ahomemadeliving January 21, 2015 at 9:43 pm

      I’m so glad you and your family liked these, Miranda! Thanks so much for letting me know, too! 🙂

  • Stephanie April 1, 2015 at 10:17 pm

    Made these tonight to freeze for lunches with some leftover quinoa. I didn’t have onion so left that out. I added garlic, paprika, finely chopped the broccoli (left raw), and totally forgot about the cheese! They still turned out awesome! Can’t wait to play around with these some more.

    • ahomemadeliving April 1, 2015 at 10:56 pm

      Hi Stephanie! So glad you liked these! That’s my favorite thing about these quinoa patties actually… it doesn’t matter if you leave something out (unless it’s a major ingredient lol), and you can add so many different flavors! Glad you liked them, let me know what other variations you try if you do! Thanks so much for stopping by to tell me!

  • Shellie April 6, 2015 at 1:56 pm

    These fell apart and were fairly watery. I’m assuming that the 1 Cup of Water in the ingredients is in fact for cooking the quinoa, rather than to put into the mix of “all ingredients”

    Any success with baking these?

    • Claire April 3, 2020 at 9:45 am

      I was confused by this as well. Would love clarifiation about the water!

  • karen April 27, 2015 at 11:25 am

    these are awesome, i actually use ritz crackers bc im short on bread crumbs here in norway lol and i cook my quinoa om veggie broth. best part is the hubby loves them and i dont havce to use meat which surprised him. lol thank you so much! i cant even change the ingredients bc these are so good as they are!

    • ahomemadeliving April 27, 2015 at 2:02 pm

      Hi Karen! Thanks so much for the comment, I’m so glad you liked these! That’s a great idea to substitute the Ritz crackers for the bread crumbs! I often cook quinoa (or couscous) in vegetable or chicken stock too, I love the added flavor! So glad you liked these, thanks so much for stopping by and letting me know!

  • Stephanie F. July 16, 2015 at 2:05 pm

  • Oralea December 21, 2015 at 9:15 pm

    Mine did not hold together at all at first… I think “large head of broccoli” might be too broad. Five large broccoli florets is A LOT of broccoli, chopped very fine, and they didn’t hold together at all until I added 3 more eggs. Maybe measured by cup would be more effective. They are totally delicious but there was a lot of frustration on my part (not to mention I was making these with my 4 year old! 🙂 Thanks for the recipe.

  • Andri February 25, 2016 at 2:19 am

    Can you freeze them?? when you prepared them but not cooked them yet??

    • ahomemadeliving April 17, 2016 at 10:40 am

      Hi Andri, I’m not sure about freezing these because of the egg that’s in the mixture… I don’t have any experience with freezing the patties, sorry!

  • Sarah June 27, 2016 at 11:27 am

    I made these this morning. They are so delicious and I found the recipe easy to follow and execute. My13 month old son has decided to become a very picky eater lately. Rejecting much of what I make him, including all things meat and veggie. I love how this uses quinoa for protein and has dairy as well as veggies to help him get all that good stuff in, in one meal. I gave him a little bite to taste and he ate it up immediately. Can’t wait to give him more at lunchtime. Thanks for sharing your recipe:) Is it alright to freeze the patties after cooking???

  • Smitty July 6, 2016 at 9:12 am

    didn’t read all the comments, so sorry if I missed this, but these look delic! Any egg substitute you would recommend? I usually use applesauce, or gel eggs. Wondering if either would work. Thanks!

  • Rachel July 11, 2016 at 8:14 pm

    My one year old devoured these! My husband and I enjoyed them as well. I will be using extra egg next time to help them stick together a bit better. Thanks for the recipe!

  • Wendy August 29, 2016 at 4:54 pm

      Hi Wendy! Sorry for the late response… I hope you enjoyed these! They work great with a light salad, but whatever you pair them with would work! Hope they were good! 🙂

  • Joy February 12, 2017 at 9:34 pm

    I would love to make this recipe, but wonder if you can approximate how much broccoli in cups this would need? 5 florets can vary so much in size, it would be helpful to know a measurable quantity. Many thanks for your reply!!! By the way, if you ever need any tools, I’m a Pampered Chef Consultant & would be happy to help you!!

    Hi! Can I use any vegetable as a substitute for the broccoli? They look super good and I can’t wait to make them for my little one!

      Hi Leo, I think you should be able to use any kind of vegetable as long as it’s a hearty one like broccoli (I’ve done a combination of cauliflower, corn and kale before). Hope it works! 🙂

    Hi there, I see all the comments are from 2013. I’m a bit late 😄 I don’t eat eggs so would a substitute work instead? Maybe flaxseed meal or something else you suggest. Thanks!

    Could you please clarify, is this 1/2c quinoa once cooked or prior to cooking?

    Also, about how much broccolli is this once cut up? I’m using a steamer bag of broccoli.

    Thanks! Making these now but wondering if I’m using the right measurements as I’m probably great 10-12 patties.
