Quinoa Veggie Burgers

 I LOVE making these, great quick easy lunch, alone, with salad or in a wrap etc. Great to freeze and take to work.

Quinoa Veggie Burgers

  • 1  cup quinoa
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • 2 zucchini, grated
  • 1 egg white, 1 whole egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup breadcrumbs or oats, whizzed up in food processor but not too fine
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon ground coriander
  • 3 tablespoons of flour (can use healthy flour like oat, coconut etc)
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • Chilli flakes – to taste

In a small pot, bring 1 &1/2 cups water to a boil. Add quinoa, cover, and reduce heat to low. Cook until liquid is absorbed, 12 to 14 minutes; set aside.

In a bowl mix the grated carrot, zucchini, eggs, cumin, coriander, salt, pepper & cooked quinoa.

Form mixture into eight to ten patties. In a large nonstick pan, heat oil over medium; cook burgers until browned, about 8 minutes per side., or bake at 180 for about 35 mins, until looking slightly browned.
