Quinoa Cakes with fresh herbs Aioli

Place quinoa, cheese, carrot,  flour, onions, egg, pepper, salt, and 1 tablespoon oil into a mixing bowl and mix until well combined. Allow the mixture to sit for 5 minutes.

Pour remaining 2 tablespoons oil into a large sauté pan and heat over medium-high heat heat. Form ¼ cup patties with the quinoa mixture and place in the heated sauté pan. Note: the cakes may be crumbly, but as they brown on one side, they will hold together. Cook quinoa cakes for about 5 minutes per side. Repeat with the remaining patties until all of the cakes have been cooked.

Meanwhile, mix together the aioli  ingredients in a small bowl. Serve alongside the warm quinoa cakes.
