  • 1 c cooked quinoa
  • 1/2 c hummus homemade or store bought
  • 1/2 c red bell pepper minced
  • 2 celery stalks minced
  • 2 scallions chopped
  • 1/2 tbs olive oil
  • tomato and extra hummus optional garnish


  • In a medium bowl, combine quinoa with hummus, red pepper, celery and scallions. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Heat a non-stick pan over medium high heat and add olive oil once heated.
  • Form quinoa mixture into palm-sized patties and brown in pan, working in batches, about 3-4 minutes per side. Be careful not to overcrowd the pan.
  • Serve with additional hummus and tomato slices.


If the quinoa cakes fall apart while cooking, simply use a spoon or spatula to re-shape and press together. It's not a beauty contest - they will taste delish regardless of what they look like. :)
