Makes 6 patties
1 Tbsp. ground flax seed
2 Tbsp. water
1 cup prepared quinoa
1 cup old-fashioned oats, dry (gluten free)
1.5 cups of chickpeas prepared
1/2 medium yellow onion, diced
1/2 cup fancy snow peas, chopped
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
6 garlic cloves, chopped
1 Tbsp. green curry paste ( I used my leftover green curry from our Thailand cook book)
1 Tbsp. tamari sauce
1 Tbsp. honey
1 Tbsp. ginger
1 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. himalayan salt
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
In a small bowl, whisk together the ground flax and water. Set aside to rest for at least 10 minutes.
In a food processor, pulse the oats until they are coarsely ground. Add the remaining patty ingredients, including the flax egg. Process well, until smooth and thick. Add Quinoa.
Preheat oven to 350 F and coat a baking sheet with a non-stick cooking spray.
Heat a large frying pan over medium heat with a splash of olive oil. Using a 1/3 measuring cup, form the burger mixture into patties and fry for 1-2 minutes on each side, until browned. Repeat until all the mixture is gone. This should make about six patties.
Once they are browned on both sides, place in oven and bake at 350 F for about 10 minutes, until golden and crispy.
