Whip up these healthy, meat-free quinoa burgers for a delicious treat and a happy body.

Crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, these quinoa burgers from Kimberly Parsons are so versatile as a snack or lunchtime protein side.

Green quinoa burgers
Serves 20

Ingredients

  • 1 butternut squash, peeled and cut into small 1cm (1/2 in) cubes
  • 3 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp sea salt flakes
  • 350g cooked quinoa
  • 200g chard leaves, lightly steamed
  • 2 spring onions (scallions), finely sliced
  • 135g crumbled goat’s cheese
  • small bunch of parsley, finely chopped
  • 2 eggs, lightly whisked
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • freshly cracked black pepper
  • 45g rice flour
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds


For the dressing

  • 3 tbsp probiotic yoghurt
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 dill sprig, roughly chopped


Method

Preheat the oven to 180ºC fan/gas mark 6. Place the squash on a baking tray. Drizzle with 1 tbsp of the coconut oil and sprinkle over the cumin and coriander. Using your hands, toss the squash to coat in the oil and spices, then sprinkle with the sea salt flakes. Roast in the oven for 15 minutes or until soft and cooked through.

Combine the cooked squash pieces, cooked quinoa, steamed chard leaves, spring onion, goat’s cheese, parsley, eggs and a little salt and pepper and gently toss together. Add the rice flour, just enough so that the mix comes together. Cover and leave to cool, then chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.

Once the mixture is chilled, take a small handful-sized piece into your hands and form into a small patty shape. Repeat with the remaining mixture, then sprinkle a few sesame seeds over the patties.

Place a large frying pan over a medium-high heat and add 1 tbsp of the coconut oil. Tilt to coat the pan in the oil and then add the patties in batches and fry for 3-4 minutes on either side until browned. Add the remaining tbsp of coconut oil when needed and repeat until all the patties are cooked.

Place the patties onto a baking tray and bake in the oven for 5-7 minutes or just enough time to cook through. Remove from the oven. Mix all the ingredients for the dressing together in a bowl and serve drizzled on top of the burgers.
