If you’re looking for a change from your usual veggie burger, these ridiculously simple to make quinoa and cheese patties are both healthy and immensely satisfying, and at around 125 calories each, are pretty guilt-free.

Before I go any further, I owe you all an apology – I’ve been stricken with migraines this week, and although I have a ton of new recipes which just need editing and writing up, to be completely honest, looking at my laptop screen for any length of time is just too darn painful.

Yes, I feel like a total lamer but sometimes you just have to admit defeat, right?

Which is why I’m just updating this recipe forĀ  these quinoa and cheese patties. I’ve been meaning to do it for a while, so now seems a good a time as any. I’m truly sorry to anyone who has been eagerly awaiting new recipes this week… I am, after all, only human. I’ll do better next week, I promise!

The first time I made these patties, I put them into a wholemeal* burger bun, and y’know what? They kind of got lost. The next time, I made a ‘skinny’ version, serving them on a bed of green leaves, with some sliced raw pepper, half an avocado each, and a little maple and mustard dressing. It worked perfectly.

*Why do I always type ‘wholemal’? Mal? Do I really have that much of a Firefly problem?

(Spoiler – it’s not a problem.)

If you want to serve these patties inside a burger bap, I recommend making them thicker (and adjusting the nutritional info accordingly, if that’s important to you). Otherwise, on a salad, or in a sturdy lettuce or kale leaf is good.
