- Prep: 20 mins
- Cook: 15 mins
1Combine cooked quinoa, breadcrumbs, bell pepper and shallots in a bowl. Add in eggs. Combine the ingredients.
2Form mixture into 8 even patties. Use approximately half cup of mixture per patty. Allow to set in refrigerator.
3Heat olive oil in large skillet. Cook quinoa cakes on medium heat until browned and a crispy outer crust is formed. About 5 minutes on each side. Allow to rest on paper towels (which will absorb the excess oil).
4To make the salad, mix together 1 tablespoon olive oil and juice of one lemon. Toss arugula in dressing. Arrange on plate and top with tomatoes, figs, blueberries and feta cheese.
5Slice quinoa cakes and arrange on top of salad. Or serve along side the salad.
