Quinoa Burgers, version 2

Quinoa burger 2

This is a standby vegetarian or vegan recipe, which we use so often that I decided to post it so that we would have it wherever we are in the world.  Like our other quinoa burger recipe on this site, It comes from Louise Hagler’s book Meatless Burgers.  But this recipe is a little quicker to prepare and has fewer ingredients. (Note: The published recipe does not include eggs, but I strongly prefer including them, as otherwise the mixture is likely to fall apart.)

  • 2 cups cooked quinoa or other cooked grain (such as brown rice)
  • 1 cup quick-cooking rolled oats
  • ½ cup wheat germ
  • ½ cup peeled, chopped plum tomatoes (I’ve also used ketchup in a pinch)
  • ½ tsp garlic powder (or pressed raw garlic)
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1-2 Tbsp nutritional yeast
  • ½ tsp salt
  • Optional but recommended: 1-2 eggs

Preheat the oven to 350º F.  Mix all the ingredients together, and form into patties.  Arrange on a baking sheet, and bake for 15 minutes on each side, or until browned.

Makes about 7 burger patties

  1. We made these today in conjunction with a cookout… it was a great hit! We were pleasantly surprised at the great, almost meat-like texture. Thank you!
