  2. Was looking around on tastespotting for broccoli/cheddar things and these fit the bill! Looks very good, never tried quinoa in a fritter before, but love the idea of extra protein.

    1. Hi There, I hope you like them. The quinoa is not overpowering. It does bump up the protein. I love all kinds of fritters! Happy Cooking! Thanks for stopping by, Jilly

    2. Made these for dinner tonight! I did not plan things out well, and ~someone~ had left only one egg in the fridge, but halving the recipe worked fine to make 5 fritters, enough for dinner for two with a nice piece of white fish and some salad.

      ~Things I learned~
      -Check to make sure there are as many eggs as you think
      -I might consider using a red chili next time for prettiness' sake, but I like heat
      -Use two spatulas for the first turn

      Thanks for the recipe, will be making it again!

    3. Oh I'm so glad you tried them and liked them (even with the missing egg). :)
      I'm sure they're great with fish! Thanks for the helpful tips. I think a red chili is a great idea! Thanks for posting this comment.

  4. These were very good! My "batter" was nothing like pancake batter though. Mine turned out more just like patties. I followed the directions exactly so wasn't sure if I should have added more liquid, but I didn't. They turned out really tasty, but not really like a fritter, more like a quinoa cake. But, like I said, VERY yummy!

  5. Hi Carroll, glad you enjoyed them. I guess you used your good cooking judgement with the decision to not add more liquid. I guess you can call them cakes or patties too. I wish I could have a more accurate description of the batter. If you think of one let me know. I'll add "thick" to the batter description. Thanks for leaving a comment and happy cooking!

  6. Hi Jill, can you use regular flour? Is self rising flour absolutely necessary?

    1. Hi there, I've never tried it with regular flour. Self rising flour has baking powder in it. I think it would work with regular flour and a pinch of baking powder. Thanks for leaving a comment. Hope you try them!
