Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup quinoa, rinsed
  • 2 cups vegetable stock
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce
  • 2 leaves kale, chopped fine
  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme, chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh oregano, chopped
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup shitake mushrooms (chopped fine)
  • 1/2 cup cremini mushrooms (chopped fine)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Preparation

  1. Place the quinoa, vegetable stock, tomato sauce, kale, thyme and oregano  in a pot on the stove.  Heat on high until boiling, reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed.
  2.  Remove from the heat, stir in the tomato paste, mushrooms and season with salt and pepper.  Set aside until cool enough to handle.
  3.  Form the quinoa mixture into patties. I got six nice size patties, you can make them whatever size you like but do not make them too thick.
  4.  In a skillet heat the oil over high to medium high heat.  Add the patties and fry on each side for a few minutes until nicely seared and heated through.  Alternatively you could bake these in the oven on a lightly greased baking pan for about 20 minutes at 350, flipping the burgers halfway through.

  1. I wish I\’d read the reviews BEFORE making these. They definitely do NOT stick together enough if you bake them. I bet if you pan-fry them in oil, it solidifies the bottom and holds them together. :-/

  2. the mixture was very tasty but my problem was they do not stick together so i added a little almond flour to hold them together,and a little bit of chopped onion,they were good,i had to add more stock because d quinoa was all dried up n not fully cooked
