Quinoa Hummus Cakes

I love hummus. Who doesn't?

Well, I bought hummus the pass weekend and I've been wanting to cook with it. An idea came into mind while I was cooking some quinoa. So, I decided to make quinoa hummus cakes! I just looked around the kitchen and put in whatever I had (of course, making sure the combination would make sense). I'm happy to say that it came out pretty tasty! My sister even likes it and she hates quinoa. She's a white jasmine rice eater.

Though these are yummy, they do fall apart easily, especially when it's hot. When it's cooled down, it won't break as easily. Anyway, here's the recipe.

Servings: 10 cakes
Calories per cake: ~120 calories


  • 1/2 cup dried quinoa (2 cups cooked)
  • 1 cup hummus 
  • 1/4 cup organic tamari sauce (It's like soy sauce)
  • 1/2 cup fat free refried pinto beans
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 carrot, chopped
  • garlic powder
  • chili powder
  • dried basil
  • paprika
  • oregano


  1. Mix all the ingredients into one bowl. For the spices, I just sprinkled them on. 
  2. Heat up a non-stick pan and spray with non-stick spray (or grease it with olive oil). 
  3. Each cake needs about 1/4 cup of the mixture. Form the cakes with your hands and place in the pan. Cook for about 3-4 minutes on one side and then flip them and cook for another 2-3 minutes. 
  4. Be careful when flipping them since they'll fall apart easily. 
  5. Serve and enjoy. 

This is the organic Tamari sauce I have. 

I hope you guys enjoy these!

  1. Hi Helen,

    I like Hummus and we like to eat it with bread and crackers as dips.

    Your idea of using Hummus for pancake making is very interesting.


    1. Hi Zoe,

      I also love eating hummus as dip with crackers and bread. It's so good!


  2. I've never eaten hummus... Well, too bad. I think it's worth trying it.
