Mushroom and Quinoa Burgers

Mushroom and quinoa burger

It’s probably a bit cold and windy for these Mushroom and Quinoa burgers to be grilled on the BBQ, but still a great recipe to try out. Place inside a toasted burger bun with some crunchy lettuce, a splash of ketchup with some oven baked sweet potato wedges on the side. Now close your eyes and pretend it’s a hot summer’s day whilst you take a bite of that delicious burger.


  1. Preheat the oven to 190oC / 170oC fan / gas mark 5
  2. In a mixing bowl, toss together the chopped mushrooms, walnuts, garlic, vegetable oil and seasoning. Spread onto a shallow baking tray and place in the oven, stirring halfway for 15- 20 minutes until the mushrooms are cooked through, then allow to cool.
  3. In a food processor blend together the mushroom mixture, red onions, spring onions and vinegar, pulse until smooth.
  4. Stir the cooked quinoa and cornflour into the mushroom mix, cover and place in the fridge to firm up for 2 hours.
  5. Remove the mix from the fridge and form into 4 equal patties.
  6. In a non-stick pan, heat 1 tbsp of oil, place the burgers into the pan and cook for 5 minutes on each side. Transfer to a baking tray, place in the oven for around 10 minutes or until completely heated through.
