Vegan quinoa, cauliflower and broccoli burgers
half of raw cauliflower
half of raw broccoli
1 cup of cooked quinoa
1 fresh chilli
1 clove of garlic
zest from half of lemon
tablespoon of coriander
pinch of salt and pepper
pinch of turmeric
2 tablespoons ( or more) gram flour
Rinse 1 cup of quinoa. Put the quinoa and 2 cups of boiling water in a pot. Add a pinch of salt. Cover and let it simmer for 15 minutes or until the water disappears. Let it stand for the next 10 minutes.
In the food processor ( you can use hand blender as well) pulse the broccoli and cauliflower until it resembles cous cous (30 seconds). Transfer to a bowl.
In the same food processor blend one chilli ( don't forget to remove the seeds) and one clove of garlic until smooth. Transfer to the same bowl.
In a large bowl mix cauliflower, broccoli and quinoa. Add the lemon zest , chilli and coriander. Add some salt, pepper and turmeric, mix, add the flour. Add 1/4 cup of water. Mix. Use more flour and more water if it doesn't stick. Be careful with adding water. You can easily add too much and the burgers will not stick together.
In a large pan melt the coconut oil.
Form small burgers from the quinoa mixture. Fry one for a couple of minutes both sides and taste if they need more seasoning. ( for a healthier option you can bake them)
Simple and delicious.
