Quinoa Fritters With Garlic Aioli

I came across this recipe by Vancessa Vickery on the Mind Body Green website.

These quinoa fritters and garlic aioli are ridiculously good! My daughter and I gobbled them up within minutes!

Ingredients for quinoa fritters:

1 cup cooked quinoa

3 eggs

1 medium sized carrot, grated

1 small onion, finely chopped

1 tbsp chives, chopped

1 tbsp coriander, chopped

1/4 cup almond meal

Sea salt


Ingredients for garlic aioli:

1/2 cup raw cashews, soaked for a minimum of 3 hours

2 cloves garlic

1 tbsp Dijon mustard

2 tbsp lemon juice

2 tbsp olive oil

1/4 tsp sea salt

1/4 – 1/2 cup water, as needed


Mix all fritter ingredients in a bowl.

Add 2 tbsp of oil to a frying pan on moderate heat.

Using a spoon, scoop out the fritter mixture and place in a frying pan and flatten a little. Make sure the edges don’t touch.

Cook for a few minutes on each side, until golden (or however crispy you want them).

Once cooked, place on a plate or cookie sheet on paper towels.

Repeat until you have used up the fritter mixture.

For the garlic aioli, place all ingredients, except the water, in a high speed blender and blend until well combined. Then slowly add the water and blend until garlic aioli has a nice creamy consistency.
