    For the Patties

    For Greek Yogurt Sauce

    • 4 tbsp Greek yogurt plain
    • 1 baby dill pickle finely chopped
    • 1 tbsp dill minced
    • 1 clove garlic finely minced
    • salt, pepper to a taste

    Instructions

    For the Patties

    • In a medium saucepan combine quinoa with 1.5 cups water. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer until quinoa is tender, about 15 minutes. Let it cool.
    • Place shredded zucchini in a large piece of paper towel and squeeze it to drain liquid out of zucchini.* (See the notes)
    • In a big bowl, combine cooked quinoa, zucchini, Feta cheese, garlic, dill, sun-dried tomatoes, eggs, bread crumbs, salt and pepper. Mix well. 
    • Form the mixture into small patties. If they start to fall apart, add more breadcrumbs, one tablespoon at a time.
    • Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-low heat. Working in batches, cook the patties for 5 minutes. Slowly and carefully flip the patties and cook for another 5 minutes. 
    • Transfer to a plate and let them cool while you prepare the sauce.

    To make Greek Yogurt Sauce

    • In a small bowl stir together Greek Yogurt, baby dill pickle, dill and garlic. Season with salt and pepper to your taste and give everything another stir.

    Notes

    Quinoa
    In my recipe I used Rainbow Quinoa, but you can use any type of Quinoa you have. 
    Cooked Quinoa will keep for 1 week in a fridge and up to 8-12 months in the freezer.
    Zucchini
    You should try to drain as much liquid as possible out of zucchini. Several changes of paper towels might be needed.
