Serves 4


  • 2 cups of frozen peas (200g)
  • ¾ cup of royal white quinoa (120 g)
  • 1-2 spring onions, to taste
  • A few mint leaves
  • 2 tablespoons of quinoa flour (or chickpea  flour)
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • To complete: burger buns, sun-dried tomatoes and vegan mayonnaise


  1. Rinse the quinoa in cold water and toast it in a pan. Add water at 1 to 1.5 ratio, bring to boil and let simmer for 12-15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the peas in a pot of boiling water for about 7-8 minutes.
  3. Drain both the quinoa and the peas and let cool down.
  4. Mix the peas until smooth. Add in the mint, spring onions, quinoa flour, salt and pepper and mix again until smooth. 
  5. Cover and let rest in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
  6. Take the mixture out from the refrigerator, wet your hands and form the burgers.
  7. Leave the burgers in the fridge for 15 minutes, then transfer them to a hot non-stick pan with a drizzle of olive oil. Cook on both sides for a couple of minutes, or until the surface is golden brown.
  8. You can also cook the quinoa and pea burgers in the oven. Place them on a tray lined with parchment paper, drizzle with olive oil and cook for about 15 minutes at 400°F (200°C).
  9. Garnish with sundried tomatoes and mayo and serve.
