Quinoa Burger Patties

by - 09:57

This is a meatfree alternative for crispy Burger Patties. I am not a big fan of Quinoa, but anyway i bought it a while ago, because it is so healthy. This recipe helped me to like it a bit more.
Whether you form patties or small little meatballs, is up to you. While this mass is a bit lighter than my Blackbean Köttbullar, it is more a chicken alternative. 

Level: EASY
What you need (5 Patties):
TIME: 45min // TOOLS: Blender, Bowl
2dl Oats
1 dl Quinoa mixed (before cooking)
1 piece vegetable stock
1 Tsp Tomato Paste (Tube)
1 Tsp Mustard
1 Tsp Flax Seeds
2 tsp aquafaba (Chickpea Water)
2 tsp corn starch
1 Tsp neutral Oil
1 Tsp Onion Powder
1 Tsp Garlic Powder
Salt / Chili Pepper

Start with washing your Quinoa before cooking it. That removes a bit of the bitter taste. Cook your Quinoa with the vegetable stock, so it soaks in the spice. 
Now remove your water and add your cooked Quinoa in a blender. You will realise they actually soaked a lot of water, so to make the mass firm for our Patties, we need to add quite a lot of dry ingredients.
Start adding the oats, the flax seed and the starch. The flax seeds and starch are added to make the mass stick together, instead of an egg, as well as the chickpea water. Add all ingredients and blend until the mass forms a ball on its own. If your blender has a hard time, continue by hand.
Put the mass in the fridge for an hour, this will make it the perfect consistence for forming afterwards.
Form little Balls and then press them flat. If the mass does not stick to your fingers, it will neither in the pan. That means its perfect. If neccessary add more oats to get the texture.
Preheat your pan with a bit of oil and fry your patties from both sides until they are crispy. 
Serve in a Burger Bun or in any other dish.
