Gluten Free Vegan Quinoa “Hamburgers”

Summer is the time for picnics and barbeques, but there is nothing Gluten Free or Vegan about traditional hamburgers!  Luckily, I discovered this very unique recipe for both ‘burger’ and bun:  Gluten Free Vegan Quinoa “Hamburgers”!!

This particular recipe combines the high nutrition of quinoa with the interesting taste of cinnamon and curry.  Check it out:

Vegan Cinnamon Curry Quinoa Burgers


1/2 cup raw quinoa
1 cup water

1 tbsp extra-virgin coconut oil
2 tsp fennel seed
2 tsp minced fresh ginger
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup diced red onion
1 tbsp curry leaves

1/4 cup dried currants
1/4 cup roughly ground sunflower kernels
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
2 tsp garam masala
1/2 tsp himalayan rock salt
2 tsp tumeric
2 tsp ground coriander

2 cups cooked chickpeas
1 flax egg – 1 tbsp freshly ground flax mixed with 2 tbsp warm water and allowed to sit for 5 minutes *see note

Directions

Preheat oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicon baking mat. Set aside.
Combine quinoa and water in a small saucepan. Cover and cook on high heat until boiling, then reduce heat to low and  simmer covered for 12 minutes. Once complete, remove from heat and keep covered for 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, place the next 6 ingredients in a medium frying pan and cook on medium-high heat for 5 minutes until onion is translucent.
Add all ingredients – cooked quinoa, sauteed onions, and remaining ingredients to the bowl of your food processor. Pulse 4-6 times until everything is combined and broken down slightly.
Shape mixture into burgers and bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 5-10 minutes so the patties hold together nicely.
