Quinoa and Roasted Vegetable Burgers (Main)


Quinoa has been called the supergrain of the future because of its complete protein profile and nutrient density. It contains almost twice as much fiber as most other grains, and is rich in magnesium, iron and vitamin B2, which improves energy metabolism within brain and muscle cells.

1 cup sweet potatoes, or yams

1 large onions
1 large sweet red bell peppers
red bell pepper, seeded and diced
1 medium zucchini
1 cup mushrooms, button
or chestnut, shiitake mushrooms, stemmed and quartered ?
1 each eggplant
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 x sea salt
1 x black pepper
1 each rosemary sprigs

4 each thyme sprigs
leaves removed
1 bunch parsley leaves

Quinoa patty:
1 cup quinoa
cooked, (preferably mix of white and black)
1 cup brown rice
½ cup basil
leaves, shredded
½ cup parsley leaves
fresh, finely chopped
¼ cup chives
finely chopped?
1 x sea salt
1 x black pepper
¼ cup sunflower seeds
¼ cup pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
¼ cup sesame seeds
preferably white
1 tablespoon cumin seeds


For the roasted vegetables:

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

In a large bowl, toss the vegetables with the herbs and oil until they are well coated. Season with salt and pepper.

Arrange the vegetables in a single layer on a baking sheet or large roasting dish and bake until they are caramelized and tender, about 25 minutes.

For the quinoa patty:

Combine the cooked quinoa and brown rice in a large bowl.

Add the fresh basil, parsley and chives.

Add the roasted vegetables to the quinoa mixture and blend the ingredients with your hands, slightly mashing them to make the binding for the grains.

Season with salt and pepper.

Form the mixture into patties of a size you prefer. Generally, a patty of 180g is sufficient for a meal.

Combine the sunflower, pumpkin, sesame and cumin seeds in a small plate.

Gently but firmly coat each side of each patty in the seed mixture.

Serve the patties cold or at room temperature.

You can also heat them in a 150°C oven for 20 minutes.

Serve with sliced avocado and fresh tomato between large lettuce leaves.

Notes: This mixture is a bit crumbly on its own, so if you'd like a firmer patty, add ½ cup of chickpea (besan) flour and ½ cup water to the mix before shaping into balls.

Chickpea flour is a great binding agent, perfect for patties and fritters.
