These nutritious rissoles are ridiculously tasty, easy to make, and will be a huge hit with the whole family.

Ingredients
3/4 cup uncooked quinoa
1/2 large zucchini, finely grated
2 eggs
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon parmesan cheese, finely grated
1 small brown onion
1 tablespoon plain flour (I use besan but you can use any gluten free flour - or plain flour if it doesn't need to be gluten-free)
1 tablespoon fresh herbs, chopped (I use parsley, thyme, rosemary and basil)
Salt and pepper

Method
Cook the quinoa in one and a half cups of water - bring to the boil then reduce to a simmer until water evaporated. Turn heat off and leave the lid on until you're ready to use it, and it will fluff up nicely.
Add the eggs to a medium to large bowl and whisk lightly.
Add to the bowl all the other ingredients (add the flour last) and mix together.

Using a spoon to measure each rissole, take the mix in your hand, roll into a ball, add to the fry pan and flatten with the spoon.
Cook until golden brown on both sides.
