Sweet Corn Quinoa Fried Rice

Today's recipe is a bit of a failed attempt that turned out pretty tasty!

I set out wanting to try out these Sweet Corn Quinoa Cakes, but ended up with a fried rice type dish that I'd definitely make again!
Ingredients
  • 1.5 c cooked quinoa
  • 1/2 cup frozen corn, or 1 ear fresh corn
  • 1 shredded zucchini
  • 3 tbls hummus
  • sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp curry powder
Simple mix all the ingredients together!
I assume the hummus was meant to hold together all the ingredients enough to be formed into patties, but it was no where near enough, and since it was the bottom of my container, I just did my best to form patties.
The patties fall apart almost as soon as we put them in the heated oil, and definitely were all gone by the time we tried to turn them over, so we ended up just finishing it off like fried rice, and it was delicious
A perfect summery fried rice-esque dish that I'll definitely make again!
Have any of you ever tried out a dish that was headed for disaster and ended up being a success?
