Red Quinoa and Rice Patty

So simple quinoa patty
I almost always cook quinoa together with another grain in my rice cooker, not sure why but I like the combinations.
 First day:  red quinoa, white rice, celery, onion, and some Mediterranean spices.
I just mixed it with greens and that's it.
Second day:  added some homemade bread crumbs, and an egg, cooked patties in some canola oil
Best eaten fresh, hot and crispy but ...
Third day:  ate the last patty with fruit for lunch - still very good!

My New Food Processor

I got a new food processor for Christmas and it makes short work of so many recipes!  I used to have to make  a can of Garbanzo beans into hummus in two or three batches in my 3 cup processor and I'd have to put up with teary eyes for 15 minutes while I chopped lots of onions.  No more!  Besides hummus I've made Butternut Squash Soup , Cranberry Relish, Black Bean Cakes and Sweet Potato Fries with my new toy already.  I'm having so much fun and I've just begun!  
Sweet Potato Fries before.....
and after baking.  Aren't they perfectly cut??
