Ground Turkey and Quinoa Patties
(Makes 10-12 patties; recipe adapted from Kalyn’s Kitchen.)
1 cup uncooked quinoa
1 lb. lean ground turkey
1/4 tsp. ground allspice
1 tsp. ground cumin
generous pinch of hot pepper flakes (optional – my kids detect anything “spicy” and then refuse to eat!)
6 T finely chopped fresh mint
3 green onions, sliced and then finely chopped
1 tsp. sea salt
2 T olive oil (more or less, depending on your pan)
Tzatziki (for serving)
Prepare the quinoa according to the package directions…set aside.
Mix together all ingredients except the olive oil and Tzatziki. Once combined, ad in the cooked quinoa a little at a time. Form into fist sized patties. Add olive oil to a heavy skillet and bring to medium-high heat. Place 2-3 patties in the pan and cook until golden on either side (approximately 5 minutes per side).
Serve the cooked patties with Tzatziki for dipping. DELICIOUS!!
