Dinner at Work - Turkey and Quinoa Burgers



Plain old burger patty just doesn't hit the spot?

Try this amazing Turkey and Quinoa mix. 

Ingredients:
turkey mince
quinoa
1 egg
half onion, diced
1 clove garlic, diced
salt
pepper
cumin
paprika
chilli powder


Method:
Cook the quinoa in boiling water (or stock) for about 15 minutes, or until most water is absorbed.

Drain and fluff with a fork. 

In a mixing bowl and turkey mince, egg, spices and quinoa and mix together. Once mixed you can either use straight away or store in the fridge for later. 

(*I also added some goji berry, sunflower and pumpkin mix to give it that extra kick.)


Once ready to eat, shape the mixture into patties. 

Add oil to the fry pan and place over a medium heat. 

Cook on both sides until brown and cooked through. 



                                                        

I had mine on gluten free seeded bread, buttered, with piccalilli, a slice of cheese, fried onion, mushrooms, tomato slices and a drizzle of ketchup.
