  • ½ cup amaranth cooked in 1 ½ cups of water
  • 1 cup Quinoa flakes
  • 2 stalks scallions cut into thin slices
  • 1 handful green peas
  • 1 tablespoon flax egg
  • 1-2 medium tomatoes
  • 1 handful spinach fresh
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil for frying
  • 3 medium Burger buns


  • In a bowl, mix the cooked amaranth, the quinoa flakes, the scallions, the peas and the flax egg.
  • Form patties. If you have time, chill them in the fridge a bit; it will help make them more “stable” to fry; if you don’t have time, no problem, you need to be more careful when you flip them over.
  • Fry the patties in about 2 tablespoons of olive oil, fry on each side for about 5 minutes, medium heat, until you get a nice brown and crunchy crust.
  • Sauté the spinach leaves very briefly.
  • Cut the tomatoes into thin slices.
  • Assemble your burger.
