Quinoa Burgers


*makes 5 large, or 12 sliders


  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa, rinsed
  • 2 cups vegetable or chicken stock
  • 1 cup chickpeas
  • ¼ cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • ¼ cup nutritional yeast
  • ¼ cup finely ground oats
  • ½ cup chopped baby carrots
  • 2 yellow onions, finely chopped
  • 2 minced garlic cloves
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon dill
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil


  1. Add quinoa and stock to a medium sauce pan and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cover, cooking for 15 minutes or until can be fluffed with a fork. You can do this ahead of time or even the night before (and store quinoa in the fridge) so the quinoa can cool.
  2. While quinoa is cooking, slice the green onions, chop the carrots, mince the garlic and grate the cheese. Coarsely chop the chickpeas.
  3. Place it all in a bowl, and then add the oats and nutritional yeast and mix.
  4. One the quinoa is finished cooking, add it to the bowl and mix well until incorporated. If needed, let cool or place in the fridge for a few minutes to cool.
  5. Add in beaten eggs, dill, salt, pepper and mix well. Form into patties.
  6. 6.    Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil. Once hot, add quinoa patties and cook until deeply golden brown and crispy, about 8 minutes per side. Serve with steamed veggies.
