tofu, quinoa and bean burger

My tofu, quinoa and bean burgers are packed with protein and full of texture and bite. Spiced with cumin, oregano and a hint of chilli.  Serve in a burger bun with all the trimmings. A quick and easy veggie burger for meat lovers and vegetarians alike. 

A great way of using up leftovers and odds and ends of cooked quinoa, tofu, beans and bread crumbs too. 

makes 6


100g firm tofu
250g cooked/tinned kidney beans
1 egg
100g cooked quinoa
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp cumin powder
1/2 - 1 tsp cayenne
1 tbsp tomato puree
1 garlic clove
salt and pepper
100g breadcrumbs
cooking oil


Add all the ingredients (apart from the quinoa and breadcrumbs) to a food processor and blend until well mixed but still with a bit of texture. You can of course do this with a spoon, but it will take a bit longer. Tip into a bowl and stir in the cooked quinoa. Shape the mixture into burgers and coat all over with breadcrumbs. Leave firm up in the fridge for 30-60 mins. Shallow fry for about 5 minutes each side or until crisp and golden and cooked through.

  1. These sound rather lovely! I often have too much cooked quinoa on hand, so this would be a great way to use it up. Thanks for sharing with the No Waste Food Challenge!

  2. thanks Elizabeth - it'd work with couscous and rice too I imagine. Adds a bit of texture and avoids food waste too.
