Quinoa and lentils are both quick and easy to cook and have nutritional values to envy. Rich sources of protein, minerals and B-vitamins, they are full of fiber which helps satiate even the hungriest of appetites. These patties are a delicious and fun option for Meatless Monday that everyone will enjoy; experiment with different vegetables in place of spinach and carrots to find the perfect pattie for your family!
