Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Heat the oil over medium heat in a large sauté pan. Add the onion, salt and pepper and cook for 5 minutes, until golden. Add the garlic and curry powder or cumin and cook another minute until fragrant.
  2. In a colander, push all of the water out of the kale with a paper towel.
  3. Add the kale, white beans and wine in the pan and sauté 7-8 minutes until the wine has been fully absorbed.
  4. Add this mixture to a food processor (or use a mixer) with the quinoa, feta and eggs.
  5. Pulse for about 10-15 seconds until the mixture starts to bind together, but isn’t completely smooth.
  6. Form 4-6 patties from the mixture. The patties can be pan seared over medium heat, with a small amount of oil in the pan, for about 3-5 minutes per side. Or, bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes.
