Kale Parmesan Quinoa Burgers

A big thanks to my friend Imee of LittleLicious Kids ( for collaborating with me on healthy recipes for both kids and adults.  These were absolutely delicious, and packed with veggies and protein!  My son loved them.

(I added a few seasonings to this recipe)

Serves:  About 12 patties


2 Cups low sodium chicken broth
1 Cup quinoa
2 Large handfuls of kale
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 Small onion, diced
4 Eggs
1 Cup panko or breadcrumbs
1/2 Cup shredded parmesan cheese
1 Tsp garlic powder
1/2 Tsp salt
1/2 Tsp pepper


Cook quinoa according to package.  Set aside to cool.

In a separate pan, heat 1 Tbsp olive oil over medium heat and add kale and onions. Toss until tender.  Set aside and cool.

In a large bowl, combine all ingredients, adding in the quinoa and kale mixture once cooled.  Form into palm sized patties.

Heat 1 Tbsp olive oil in a large nonstick skillet and cook 4-5 patties at a time for 5 minutes on each side, or until browned on both sides.

Cook the remaining patties, or freeze for later use.
