Potato Quinoa Croquettes

This recipe takes me back to my childhood.  When I was young I remember my mum always making us potato croquettes and they were so delicious.   The warm mash potato surrounded by the crispy breadcrumb was heaven and the smell in the was out of this world!

I’ve tweaked the original recipe to suit the vegan diet and boost the dish with protein and best of all you can shape them to be any size.  Larger patties for lunch or dinner or small mini croquettes as snacks for the kids.  Serve them plain or with any sauce like the Sugo Napoli.
