Do not try to save the world or do anything grandiose. Instead, create a clearing in the dense forest of your life and wait there patiently, until the song that is your life falls into your own cupped hands and you recognize and greet it. Only then, will you know how to give yourself to this world so worthy of rescue.- Martha Postlewaite

Here’s an easy healthy recipe for Broccoli Cakes that are made with simple ingredients you probably have on hand. It’s a quick and healthy nutritious meal that really satisfies! Filling yet light, I love these best served with a generous side of salad or simple sauteed greens.

If you’de like to add a flavorful sauce, the possibilities are endless here and I’ll list a variety of options in the recipe notes. Here I’ve served them with this Vegan Cilantro Crema that I had from leftover tacos.

Also, I intentionally left the seasonings pretty basic here, to make them easy and accessible- and I know you will find ways to jazz these up to your liking.

Broccoli Quinoa Cakes! |30-sec video

cook quinoa

To get this started, cook 1/2 cup quinoa in 1 cup water. This will take about 15 minutes.

While the quinoa is cooking, steam 8-10 ounces of broccoli florets, which is about 4-5 cups, packed tight.

Add the steamed broccoli (pat it dry), scallions, seasonings, egg, cheese and quinoa to the food processor. Pulse until combined. Add almond flour or bread crumbs to bind.

You’ll end up with a coarse mixture that can be formed into patties.

It should look like this! A dry, sticky mix.

Form patties with damp hands. If they feel wet, you could coat in bread crumbs, but I don’t usually need the bread crumbs.

Sear the broccoli cakes up in a well-oiled skillet over medium-low heat.

FYI: If you don’t fiddle with them, they won’t stick, naturally releasing from the pan as they form a crust.

Cook them until slightly puffed and store in a warm oven until ready to serve.

At this point, the Broccoli Cakes can be refrigerated and reheated for lunches.

So as you can see I did not have to coat the broccoli cakes in flour or bread crumbs.

Using a metal spatula helps here (it has a thinner edge) as well as being patient, letting them release themselves from the pan as they from the crust, very gently flipping.

The crispy quinoa edges add great texture! Feel free to add a sauce (see notes) or leave them plain!
