(for 12 – 15 burgers)
1 1/4 cups of quinoa, (white, red and black)
1 3/4 cups of vegetable broth
2 Tbsp coconut or avocado oil
2 medium sized carrots, finely grated
1 onion, finely chopped (or 3 spring onions)
2 Tbsp chopped parsley, cilantro and basil (or any herb you like)
1 cup almond flour
Salt and Pepper
3 Tbsp whole wheat flour mixed with 6 Tbsp water (or 1-2 eggs, depending on storage))
Rinse the quinoa with hot water. Bring the vegetable broth to a boil. Add the quinoa and cook over low to medium heat for 15-20 minutes until it is completely dry (but not burned!)
Heat the oil in a pan, add the onions and carrots and sauté for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add the herbs, almond flour and quinoa and mix well.
Add the mix of whole wheat flour and water (or 1-2 eggs), season with salt, pepper and nutmeg to taste.
Form the mix into 12-15 burger patties and cook in the pan or in the oven at 390ºF for about 40 minutes.
If you like spicy food you can add 1/4 – 1/2 tsp of red pepper flakes to the mix.
