  • Add quinoa, water and ¼ tsp salt to a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil then cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer 18–20 minutes until quinoa is tender. Remove from heat to let cool slightly.
  • Place peeled baked potatoes into a medium mixing bowl and mash coarsely using a fork until mostly smooth. Add beaten egg, sliced green onion, ½ tsp salt, pepper and garlic powder then mix until completely combined. Gently stir in cooled quinoa.
  • Place large skillet over medium heat. Add enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan by about ¼”. While the oil is heating, scoop ¼ cup of potato quinoa mixture and form into patties.
  • Carefully place as many patties as you can in the skillet (without overcrowding), working in batches if necessary. Fry for about 5 minutes per side or until golden brown and crispy. Remove from oil then place on a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess grease. Sprinkle with a little salt then serve while hot and crispy.


You can easily bake these instead of frying—just place them in the oven on 375 degrees for 18–25 minutes depending on thickness!
