Patties are a whole category of dinner recipes that I love. They are endlessly versatile. You can take whatever vegetables are hanging out in your fridge, combine it with some grains (or not) and spice it up however you choose. But it’s one of those dishes that I always have to pull up a recipe for. The worst (and far too common problem) is putting together all of your ingredients, placing some patties in the pan, and having it all fall apart (literally). While they’re usually still edible, it’s a total pain and the texture is all wrong. That’s why having this broccoli and quinoa patty recipe in my back pocket is so important.
What do you make on a busy weekday night? As long as we’re feeling asian, peanut-y flavours, this dish is our go to. Not only is it delicious but it is so, so fast to throw together. Here are the steps I go through to whip up this meal in a snap: Put water on a boil for soba noodles, mix together sauce, cook soba noodles (they only take 3-4 minutes and it is possible to cook any vegetables you may be using in the same pot, making it a one-pot meal), rinse, reheat.
