I love making healthy fritter recipes because they are SO versatile! You can use them as burger patties, serve them for brunch or dinner and they also make the perfect leftovers to reheat. This particular recipe uses quinoa, pumpkin, chickpeas and spinach so it is a perfect source of protein and nutrients.
