Sweet Pea Patties
Recipe: Sweet Pea-Quinoa Fritters


  • 1/2 cup extra-firm silken tofu
  • 2 tablespoons white, all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped garlic
  • 1/2 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1 1/3 cup frozen green peas, thawed
  • 1/2 cup snipped chives, plus chive blossoms for garnish, if available
  • Grapeseed or olive oil, as needed
  • Your choice of toppings such as chopped tomatoes, lemony yogurt or smashed avocado


  1. Process tofu and flour until smooth. Add cumin, garlic, quinoa, peas, snipped chives and pulse until combined. Season to taste with kosher salt and freshly ground pepper.
  2. In a large skillet, heat 2-3 tablespoons oil over medium heat. Shape pea mixture into 4 patties. (They will firm up as they cook.) Add patties to skillet and cook until browned on bottom, 6-9 minutes. Adjust heat so the patties cook but do not burn. When fritters have browned on bottom, with a spatula, carefully turn and cook until nicely browned on both sides.
  3. Serve with desired topping.

Time to Make (after quinoa is cooked and peas are thawed): 5 minutes

Time to Cook: apx. 15 minutes

Number of servings (yield): 2 SERVINGS
