  1. Preheat the oven to 350˚F (180˚C). Grease a baking sheet with nonstick spray.
  2. Finely chop the kale. Mince the garlic.

  4. Chop the sun-dried tomatoes and add to the kale mixture.
  5. In a large bowl, beat the eggs, then add the quinoa, oat flour, kale mixture, oregano, basil, parsley, salt, and Parmesan cheese. Mix well.
  6. Shape the quinoa mixture into 20 small patties. Place on the prepared baking sheet.
