Rissoles are small croquettes or fritters that are amazingly versatile. As such you’ll find a ton of recipes with a variety of different ingredients online. This delicious vegetarian recipe from Sunday Morning Banana Pancakes utilizes tri-color quinoa, honey-roasted pecans, kale and acorn squash and includes a yummy maple aioli as the finishing touch.

  1. Preheat oven to 400 F.
  2. Toss squash in olive oil and arrange in an even layer on a sheet pan.
  3. Roast squash 10-15 minutes, until tender, and set aside.
  4. Rinse quinoa under cold water, bring water to a boil and cook quinoa for 12-15 minutes or until water is absorbed.
  5. Pulse pecans, kale, and red pepper flakes in food processor, add cooked squash and pulse a few times until squash begins to combine with kale and pecans. Add quinoa and salt, process for about 30 seconds until a mixture begins to form.
  6. Add AP flour and continue to mix until fully incorporated.
  7. Allow mixture to slightly cool, enough to comfortably handle. If making in advance mixture can be refrigerated at this point until ready to use.
