A yummy alternative to a meat burger.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Makes: 12 burgers

Ingredients
1 cup uncooked quinoa
2 cups water
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup grated cheese
1/2 cup ricotta
1 medium carrot, grated
3 eggs
3 tbsp plain flour/ 6 tbsp gluten free plain flour
1 small onion, finely chopped
1/2 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp garlic powder
Olive oil

Method
  • Bring 2 cups of water to the boil with 1/4 tsp salt on a medium heat.
  • Once boiling, reduce the heat add the quinoa.
  • Cover and allow to cook until all of the water is absorbed and the quinoa is tender. This should make 2 cups of cooked quinoa.
  • Allow to cool.

  • In a large bowl, add the cooled quinoa, cheese, ricotta, carrot, eggs, flour, onion, sugar, pepper, cumin, salt and garlic powder. Mix well.

  • The mixture will be quiet runny but will cook fine.
  • Heat oil in a large frying pan on medium heat.
  • When oil is hot, scoop about 1/4 cup worth of mixture into patties on the pan.

  • Leave to cook until the bottom is crisp, about 4 minutes, then flip.

  • Allow to fully cook, long enough to ensure the middles are cooked, about 4 minutes again, (when you press the flip down on them if they are not cooked mixture will ooze out, otherwise prick them with a fork).
  • Enjoy with a fresh salad, in a bun or by them selves.

  • Note
    Try to keep some oil in the pan while cooking so that they do not start to burn.
