When it comes to holiday cooking, there are times when you need to stick with the classics and other times when you can bend the rules a bit. Friendsgiving is one of my favorite occasions for adding unique twists to the holiday dinner table.

Ideal for an appetizer or as a unique side dish, these quinoa fritters are ideal for entertaining because they are naturally gluten-free and vegan. Instead of the traditional bread crumbs and egg binder, Sabra hummus keeps all of the ingredients together.

Preparing Quinoa Patties

If you want to serve these quinoa fritters as an appetizer, simply form them into one or two-bite sized patties.

Vegan Hummus Quinoa Patties

These protein-packed hummus quinoa patties are naturally vegan and made with creamy hummus, corn, and jalapenos.
PREP: 15 minutes
COOK: 15 minutes
TOTAL: 30 minutes


  • 1 cup quinoa (uncooked)
  • 2 cups chicken broth (or water)
  • 10 ounces Sabra Original Hummus
  • ½ cup cooked corn kernels (from fresh or frozen)
  • ¼ cup red onion (minced )
  • ¼ cup cilantro (minced – optional )
  • 2 tablespoons jalapeno (minced)
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper


  • Prepare quinoa according to package instructions using chicken or vegetable broth instead of water if you wish. Fluff with a fork when it's done cooking then remove quinoa from pot and place in a medium bowl. Let quinoa cool slightly.
  • To the bowl with the cooked quinoa, add all remaining ingredients. If the mixture seems wet, sprinkle in a little almond flour to absorb moisture.
  • Form mixture into patties – any size you wish. If you're serving as the main course, make them slightly larger. If you want them to be bite-sized for an appetizer, make them about the size of two tablespoons.
  • Preheat griddle or a large skillet over medium-high heat. Spray with cooking spray or use a little oil. Cook patties for 5-6 minutes per side. Note: if they fall apart slightly simply push them back/re-shape into patties. Serve warm, room temperature or chilled.
