 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

1

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

2

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

3

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

4

Set aside until cool enough to handle.

5

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