Quinoa Cakes

You know me and quinoa, I love it and it's a great source of protein and a healthy food that fills you up. I ate these for dinner last week and really enjoyed them.
The recipe calls for:
2 cups quinoa, cooked
2/3 cup fontina cheese, grated
3 tbs flour
1 egg
2 tbs olive oil
2-3 chives
salt & pepper to taste
-- Add the olive oil to a pan and heat on medium.
-- Mix the remaining ingredients. Form patties, I used a 1/4 cup measuring cup.
-- Add the patties to the heated pan. Cook on each side for about 5 minutes.
I made an aioli to dip them in which came out great and paired well with the patties. I used minced garlic, a little mayo (light if you have it), a couple drops of lemon juice and a chipotle spice we had on hand. You can use any spice you prefer and can also substitute a different cheese if you wanted.
