I grew up eating burgers, unfortunately they were the golden arches. But since then I have created the Ultimate Quinoa Burger that is packed filled with plant based protein, and veggies! I use sweet potatoes, quinoa and flax! See recipe below


  • 1 1/2 cups cooked quinoa

  • 2 tablespoons ground flax + 6 tablespoons water

  • 1 cup destemmed and finely chopped kale

  • 1/2 cup quinoa flour

  • 1/2 cup cubed butternut squash or sweet potato 

  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds

  • 2 tablespoons finely diced onion

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 1 tablespoon runny tahini paste

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons herb de provence mix

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar

  • 1/2 teaspoon fine grain sea salt, or to taste

  • pinch of cayenne pepper ginger powder & cumin to taste


  • 1/2 Avocado

  • 1/2 Cup Coconut Milk

  • 3/4 Cup Fresh Basil

  • 2 Tsp Apple Cider Vinegar

  • 1 Tablesppon of White Miso

  • Pinch of Salt & Cayenne 


  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Mix the ground flax and water in a small bowl and set aside for 5 minutes or so to thicken.

  • Combine all ingredients together in a large bowl, including the flax mixture and the 1.5 cups cooked quinoa. Stir well until the mixture comes together. Don't forget the flour because it helps bind the patties.

  • Shape mixture into 1/4-cup patties with wet hands. Pack tightly so they hold together better. Place on baking sheet.

  • Bake for 15 minutes, then carefully flip cakes, and bake for another 8-10 minutes until golden and firm.

  • Cool for 5 minutes on the sheet and then enjoy!
