Something quick & easy for dinner tonight.

Quinoa Mushroom Burgers

20 finely minced mushrooms (use food processor and stop before they turn into a paste)
½ cup cooked cooled quinoa
⅓ cup finely chopped onion
2 finely chopped garlic cloves
½ teaspoon soy sauce
½ tablespoon vegetarian Worcester sauce
1 egg
salt and freshly ground black pepper
seasonings of choice
¼ cup shredded Vegetarian Parmesan
½ tablespoon smoked paprika

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.
