Brunch came early today! I’m in the burn stages of my workout so I definitely needed some muscle fuel today, and this did the job perfectly!

These were super yummy and filling, but also light so you won’t feel bloated or tired πŸ™‚

Recipe for patties: makes 8

1 cup organic whole grain quinoa (cooked)
2 organic cage free eggs (or 1/4 cup ground flax/chia seed powder)
1/3 cup organic chives (chopped)
1/4 cup red onions (chopped)
1/4 cup organic red bell peppers (chopped)
1 1/2 chopped garlic cloves
Salt and pepper, plus spices/seasonings of choice.

Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix well until batter is well moulded

Heat a skillet with coconut or olive oil over medium heat. Form mixture into eight 1 inch thick patties and fry each one, flipping sides after 20 seconds.

Poached egg:

Place 1/2 tsp of coconut oil in a skillet over medium heat and crack one egg at a time in the middle, making sure you’re keeping it centred.

Pour 1/4 cup of water around the egg and cover the skillet so that the egg can steam. Remove the egg from the skillet when a white glaze is formed at the top. Repeat the process for the second egg.

When ready, top patties with tomatoes, sliced avocado, and poached egg.

    Good concept but would use less egg . Patties did not hold together.

      It held well for me, i guess it depends on how you use your ingredients. Thanks for the feedback though πŸ™‚
