in a sauce pan, heat 2 tbsp olive oil to medium heat.  divide quinoa into patties (creates about 8 patties) and fry on both sides for about 5 minutes each.

















remove from heat and let the patties drain on a paper towel.  serve warm.  i sprinkle crumbled feta cheese on top and hot sauce on the side for some extra flavor!
