  1. Rinse the quinoa and place in a medium saucepan with 2 cups water. Bring to a boil then immediately reduce heat to a simmer, add a pinch of salt and cover and cook for 15 minutes. Turn off the heat, fluff with a fork and set the lid ajar to rest.
  2. In a food processor, pulse the raw cauliflower until it resembles cous cous. You will need 2 cups cauliflower crumbs. Remove from the processor. Process rolled oats in the food processor until fine (if there is a few cauliflower crumbs in bowl that is ok). Combine processed rolled oats, quinoa, cauliflower, eggs, onions, cheese and lemon in the food processor bowl and pulse until just combined. Season to taste and set mixture aside.
  3. Make salsa by tossing together all ingredients. Set aside.
  4. Thinly cover the base of a large frying pan with oil and heat over medium-high heat. Drop 1/4 cups of mixture into the pan and fry, in batches, for 3-5 minutes on each side, turning carefully with an egg flip. Cool slightly before serving with salsa.

Tips / Handy Hints

Preparation Time: 20 minutes Cooking Time: 30 minutes Tri-colour quinoa is a blend of white, red and black quinoa. Substitute any coloured quinoa if unavailable. If you don't have a food processor try grating the cauliflower, use quick oats and toss everything together in a bowl.
