Quinoa Mushroom Burger
A nutritious and delicious meat-free burger recipe from MFMer Irene Rutigliano.
Sauté the onion and garlic in oil olive till translucent then add the mushrooms. Stir well to coat and sauté till the mushrooms are brown, cooked down and all the liquid is absorbed. Half way through cooking add soy sauce, vegetarian Worcester sauce and seasonings.
Remove from the heat and allow to cool.
Add the remaining ingredients, using enough quinoa to be a ratio of approx. one third mushrooms and using just enough bread crumbs to make mixture stick together but not be too dry. Form patties about half an inch thick. Make about 4. Chill.
To cook, sauté in a little olive oil till browned on both sides, about 3 or 4 minutes per side. Transfer to cookie sheet and bake in 180°C/350°F/gas mark 4 oven for 10 minutes.
“My goal was to make a veggie burger that had great texture and taste. I think I succeeded.
Don’t rush the mushrooms, make sure all the moisture has cooked away. Enjoy! I would love to know if you tried them and what you thought!”
