Kale, Salmon and Quinoa Patties

  • 250g kale, chopped finely
  • 415g can salmon, drained and bones removed
  • 1 cup quinoa (any variety)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped finely
  • Olive oil, for shallow frying

1. Cook quinoa in a saucepan with water, according to the packet directions, until cooked

 
 

2. In a bowl, combine kale, salmon, cooked quinoa, eggs, breadcrumbs and parsley. The mixture should be able to stick together without being too sticky- add extra eggs or breadcrumbs if needed to get the right consistency

 
 

3. Shape the mixture into patties

 
 

4. Heat enough oil in a frypan to just cover the base. Cook the patties on each side in batches until crispy. Serve immediately

And a word from the dietitian...

One ingredient in this recipe gets nowhere near the praise it deserves. Parsley. It's not just a garnish- when compared to kale, it is very similarly very high in Vitamin A, C, K, folate  and magnesium, yet has FOUR times the iron content. So give it the attention it deserves and use it generously to add flavour and nutrients to your meals.
