Quick easy burgers. Top with avocado and tomatoes, or anything you fancy!

  • Prep: 10 mins
  • Cook: 40 mins


1 1/2 cup quinoa, rinsed

500ml 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 puree

1/2 cup shitake mushrooms (blitzed)

1/2 cup button or chestnut mushrooms (blitzed)

2 tbsp olive oil

2 tsp chilli flakes

1/3 cup oats

Salt and pepper to taste


1Place the quinoa, vegetable stock, tomato sauce, kale, thyme and oregano in a pan on the hob.

2Heat on high until boiling, reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed.

3Remove from the heat, stir in the tomato puree, mushrooms and season with chilli flakes, salt and pepper and stir in the oats.

4Set aside until cool enough to handle.

5Form the quinoa mixture into burgers. I got eight. You can make them whatever size you like but do not make them too thick.

6Bake these in the oven on a lightly greased baking tray for about 20 minutes at 190, flipping the burgers halfway through.
