Quinoa burger

This burger is not only healthy, but it tastes great and has lots of good ingredients in it.

It is not at all greasy, like a bought one and you could substitute anything on this if you don't like any of the vegetables I have used.

Preparation Time: 25 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Makes: 2 burgers

½ cup water
¼ cup quinoa, rinsed thoroughly
About 12 g rolled oats
2 tbs grated parmesan cheese
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tbsp chopped fresh chives or spring onion
1 small zucchini, cut with potato peeler
1 yellow squash, thinly sliced
2 wholegrain bread rolls (large),cut in half
Small handful of baby spinach leaves
Dob of mayonnaise
75 g baby beetroot, peeled, chopped
1½ tsp lemon juice
30 g Granny Smith apple, chopped
30 g smooth feta

  • Put the water and quinoa into a small pot and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for about 12 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed -if you are using red quinoa, you can see the white "tails" when it is almost done.

  • Transfer this to a bowl and allow to cool completely.

  • Add the rolled oats, Parmesan, chives and half of the egg mixture. Add salt & pepper and mix.

  • Leave this mixture to stand for about 10 minutes while you make the rest.

  • Meanwhile make the relish by putting the beetroot pieces and lemon juiceinto a processor. I do not have one so used a blender. Mix till finely chopped.

  • Add the apple and fetta.

  • Process until it forms a coarse paste. Add salt and pepper, if required.
  • Relish now ready for use

  • Cook the zucchini strips and squash for a few minutes, and add salt and pepper when cooked.

  • Heat a bit of oil in a frypan and using large egg rings, place the quinoa mixture in these, and flatten.
  • Flatten the burgers

  • Cook for around 2 minutes each side or until crisp and browned. Remove the egg rings when turning.

  • Top each bread roll with the beetroot relish.

  • Add some baby spinach.

  • Add the quinoa burger.

  • Add the squash and Zucchini

  • Add a dollop of mayonnaise and spread lightly.

  • I then fried the left over egg as an omelette and put this on top.
  • Ready to put top of roll on burger

  • Now top with the top of the roll and eat without it spilling everywhere!
