|500 ml||vegetable broth|
Cut the broccoli into florets, peel and chop the carrots and add to the pot. Also, chop the bell peppers and leeks, and set aside. Wash quinoa well and drain.
Add vegetable broth to the broccoli and carrots, bring to the boil and cook for approx. 7 min. Add bell peppers and leek, and cook for approx. 5 min. more. Then add quinoa, reduce to medium heat, and let simmer for approx. 10 min. Switch off the heat, and let the pot sit for approx. 10 – 15 min. Transfer mixture to a large bowl and allow to cool.
Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F. Add eggs and some breadcrumbs to the quinoa mixture. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and mix well to a uniform mass. Form into palm-sized patties and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
Bake patties at 200°C/400°F for approx. 20 min. Let cool and serve with a light salad, cottage cheese, or avocado.
