Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!
Quinoa Burger

Preparation time:: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 15 minutes

Number of servings: 4


1 1/2 cups cooked quinoa

1 cup Vital Wheat Gluten

¼ cup Nutritional Yeast

1 tablespoon garlic powder or 4 cloves garlic, minced

1 tablespoon onion powder

1 teaspoon Smoked Paprika

½ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper

½ cup organic ketchup (look for a brand that doesn’t have high fructose corn syrup)

1/2 cup steak sauce or additional ketchup

2 tablespoons No Stir Peanut Butter

1 tablespoon Liquid Smoke (optional)


- In a medium bowl combine vital wheat gluten, nutritional yeast, garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika and fresh ground black pepper.

- In a large bowl combine cooked quinoa, organic ketchup, steak sauce, peanut butter and liquid smoke (if you are using.). Add gluten mixture to quinoa and stir to combine. Use clean hands and mix everything together. You will need to knead much like you knead bread. Allow to sit for 15 minutes to allow the gluten to develop.

- Form into four patties. Grill for about seven minutes a side or 12-15 minutes if using a Griddler or foreman grill. Alternatively, heat olive oil in a skillet to medium and cook 5 to 7 minutes a side.
