If you like, you can use the same frying pan to cook the veggie burgers in, but if you're making a bunch, a bigger pan is more convenient.
Make extra quinoa burger mix so you'll have enough patties to freeze (cooked or uncooked) for quick meals at home or to take along. Cold quinoa burgers make great sandwiches.
Substitute millet for quinoa if you like. The cooking method is exactly the same, only millet takes about 10 minutes longer to cook.More Quinoa Info and Tips
Question: Are these burgers able to "hold together"? - Louise J.
Answer: They hold together pretty well, though not as well as tofu burgers. Everything binds together as they cook. And it helps if you have time, to chill the mixture for an hour before cooking.
Awesome burgers! I even did a couple on the bbq though I did not flip them in case they started falling apart. I did also add some nutritional yeast because I love the stuff! I also didn't have flax seed meal so I used regular flour, maybe this helped bind it together better? The hummus I used was a spicy store bought variety and gave the burgers a kick that I really liked... for those who like spicy add some crushed chilly peppers;). Thanks! Ken R.
We love this recipe, though no store I've been to can identify "brown rice powder!" I just double the flax meal. I also use a little less hummus, making the burgers less mushy, and they hold together better - Dennis E.
