Scallion Quinoa Cakes

Makes 8-12 cakes, depending on size

1 cup cooked quinoa

1/2 cup chopped green onions/scallions

1 tablespoon homemade ranch seasoning

1 tablespoon nutritional yeast

1 tablespoon unsweetened original almond milk

1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

1/4 cup all-purpose flour

Oil, as needed for frying

Directions:

In a medium mixing bowl combine the quinoa, green onions, seasoning, and nutritional yeast.  Make sure all the ingredients are incorporated and spread evenly.

Add the remaining ingredients and stir well.  Scoop the batter out to your preferred size (1-2 tablespoon scoop) and flatten into a disk.  Meanwhile, heat a nonstick frying pan and about a tablespoon of oil over medium-low heat.  Fry the quinoa cakes, no more than 4 at a time, for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and crisp.  Serve and enjoy immediately.
