Quinoa Fritters and Garlic Aioli

Have leftover quinoa sitting in your fridge? Spruce it up with herbs and make deliciously crispy quinoa fritters served with a garlic aioli.

I had some leftover quinoa in my fridge from yesterday and decided to make my Quinoa Fritters. As I was getting the ingredients ready, I realised that there was quite a bit of dairy in my recipe.

Since posting the original recipe, my husband and I have cut out dairy and I know many of you also don’t eat dairy for various reasons, whether that is because you follow a paleo or vegan lifestyle or you have an dairy and/or lactose allergy or intolerance.

So, I decided to make a new version of my Quinoa Fritters and have omitted the cheese. I still wanted to have a dipping sauce, so I made up a healthy garlic aioli instead of the garlic yoghurt sauce.

I had planned to add some parsley, but accidentally added in coriander. Easy mistake to make when they look so similar! Anyway, the coriander and chives worked really well together, so I have kept it in the recipe below.

  7. Serve and enjoy.
