  1. Bring water and quinoa to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until quinoa is tender and water has been absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Spray a baking sheet with olive oil cooking spray.
  3. Stir quinoa, spinach, bread crumbs, eggs, and Colby cheese together in a bowl. Drop spoonfuls of the quinoa mixture onto the prepared baking sheets and press to desired thickness.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the bottoms of the patties are golden, about 15 minutes. Flip patties and bake until golden, about 5 minutes more.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Substitute multigrain baby cereal for the bread crumbs if making for toddlers.

Great, easy recipe. Used chicken broth instead of water and added parsley from the garden for more flavor. Only thing I would suggest is read your quinoa directions for cooking as mine have a 2:...

Fabulous basic recipe! Easy to spice it up with some onions, garlic, hot sauce, sharp cheese, etc when intended for an adult palate, but as it stands this is great for kiddos (and less adventuro...
