I’m just checking in quickly to share one of the recipes I cook the most for my family; Quinoa, lentil & spinach patties. They’re are dinner-savers for working mothers. I cook them on Sunday nights to keep in the fridge for a healthy and easy dinner on busy week nights or a quick snack to avoid any hangry kid situation. So, you might be going “isn’t quinoa and lentils a lot of work?” I promise you, it’s not. In fact, you’ll only need one pot as the quinoa and lentils have the same cooking time, and they cook fast. Once you’ve cooked the grains all you need to do is mix and fry, and you’re ready to go. What’s not to like?

Quinoa, lentil & spinach patties

Quinoa, lentil & spinach patties


  • 200 grams quinoa
  • 100 grams red lentils
  • 700 ml water
  • 150 grams feta cheese
  • 2 handfuls of fresh spinach, roughly chopped
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tablespoons whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 2 teaspoons flaky sea salt
  • Olive oil for frying


  1. Rinse the lentils and quinoa and place in a pot along with the water. Bring to a simmer and let it cook under a lid for 15-17 minutes until done. Remove any excess water. Transfer to a deep plate and let cool until you can touch them without burning your fingers.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients to a big mixing bowl and add in the quinoa-lentil mix. Use your fingers to combine all the ingredients and gather to a large ball in the bowl. Let the 'dough' rest for 30 minutes.
  3. Heat 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. While the pan heats, divide the dough into 12 small balls and press each into the shape of a pattie. Place as many patties as you can in the frying pan and let them fry for 5 minutes on both sides. Repeat with another batch adding more olive oil to the pan in between batches.
