As you may already know, I’ve recently started school. Since I’m taking all night classes, I don’t really have as much time to prepare a substantial meal for dinner while running from work to school.
To solve this problem, I have been making a lot of meals that freeze easily.
All the convenience with all the nutrients.
I recently posted my recipe for homemade pumpkin black bean soup. That recipe along with this one are my two go to freezer meals.
I adapted this recipe from this one here
You are going to need:
1. 1 cup uncooked quinoa
2. 2 cups water
3. 4 eggs- whisked
4. 1/3 cup parmesan cheese
5. 3 garlic cloves, minced
6. 1 cup steamed and chopped spinach
7. 1 cup breadcrumbs
8. 2 tsp cumin
9. 1 tsp garlic powder
10. 2 tsp minced onions
11. 1 tsp olive oil
Start off by rinsing your quinoa and boiling it in the water.
If you want to learn how to make quinoa, check out my post on cooking it here.
Combine all your ingredients together (except olive oil) and refrigerate until cool enough to handle. I left it in the fridge for a few hours.
When ready to make, form into 7 patties
Heat the olive oil on a pan and patties on both sides. I did mine in two separate batches.
Wrap in foil or in bags and freeze until ready to use or eat immediately.
