About the music: This is basically as healthy as I get. I mean, there is so much good shit packed into the patties it makes me feel like I am about to grow branches. Given the earthy and organic nature of this recipe we though we would give you some nice organic tunes to go with it. “What Kind of Breeze Do You Blow?” is a group that I have never heard anything about other than this mix. They are Canadian, thats all I could find, so that’s cool, eh? Anyways, this mix is mellow and textured at the beginning and really moves into some swinging spacey grooves at the end. So as you mold these balls of health let this mix mold your mind.
Prep time: 1 hour
2 cups water
1 cup Quinoa
1/3 cup parmesan cheese
4 whisked eggs
6 green onions sliced thin
4 cloves garlic
1/2 tsp salt
1.5 cup steamed kale, chopped
1 cup breadcrumbs
some cilantro (optional)
Now that your sufficiently relaxed and groovin’ to this mix, pour the quinoa into a pot with the water and let sit for 15 minutes with no heat. While that is happening, chop everything else. This includes but is not limited to: all the garlic, the onions, kale, a fresh bowl. You can whisk the eggs too.
Put the kale in a steaming basket with about an inch or two of water, a little lemon juice and around 1/4 of your chopped garlic. Don’t turn on yet.
Cover the quinoa and turn on the heat and bring to a bowl. Turn down to low and let simmer, covered, for 20 minutes until it has absorbed the water. About halfway into this turn on the kale and steam, covered, for 7-10 minutes. Take both the kale and the quinoa and throw them into a big bowl and let cool.
You should also probably be swilling on some sort of fine beverage. Perhaps an ice cold Coca-Cola Classico, or if you want something healthier drink some Kombucha you pretentious bastard.
Now mix the eggs, salt, onions, a little lemon zest, breadcrumbs, and parmesan into the bowl with the quinoa and kale. Form small patties with your hands and put on your preparation station (a plate). Put a large skillet on medium high heat with some olive oil. Cook each patty, covered, about 6-7 minutes or until each side is a nice golden brown.
By now this mx should be in full shakedown mode so be careful not to dance too hard while slicing this avocado. Grate some fresh parm on top of each patty, add a piece of avocado and a little cilantro and lemon juice. Yes, its a funk punk, ladies and gentleman.
