      Glad to see someone already put this recipe on here. A co-worker sent me this recipe by email yesterday, and it looked so good I made it last night. My hubby does not like quinoa but I love it, so this was just intended for me. That brings up a good point... If you do not like quinoa, you are not going to like this recipe. It is an unusual texture that some people just don't enjoy. <br/><br/>I made one major modification to cut the fat. Instead of pan frying, I put the cakes on a cookie sheet with cooking spray and baked them at 400 degrees, flipping once. I started off at 15 minutes, but ended up baking them for about 20 minutes. That might have been just a tad too long, but they did get a nice golden brown color.<br/><br/>I also made half with fontina and half with reduced fat feta. (I just love feta and thought that might be good too.)<br/><br/>Both tasted great! They were a little dry, but I know that has more to do with my cooking method. Next time, I may add another egg or some other form of moisture if I try baking them again. <br/>However, I will note that they seemed to have more moisture today as leftovers. <br/><br/>I will definitely make these again, and have already been thinking of other modifications and tweaks I can make. For example, I may cook the quinoa in vegetable broth next time, just to add some flavor.
