A healthy take on everyone's favourite, these chickpea quinoa burgers are a good source of dietary fibre, protein, niacin, folate, magnesium, phosphorus and copper and a very good source of manganese.
1 cup (8oz / 240g) cooked chickpeas
1 cup (8oz / 240g) mushrooms
½ cup (4oz / 240g) cooked quinoa
¼ cup (2oz / 50g) flour
1. Add all ingredients to a food processor and blend until combined. Alternatively, mash everything together with a fork or a potato masher. A hand blender will work too. You can also use your hands.
2. Split the mix into 6 portions and form burger patties.
3. Transfer to a baking tray lined with baking paper and bake in the middle of the oven at 392°F (200°C) for 20 minutes or until they begin to brown. Serve hot.

-You can fry them on a frying pan or grill on a BBQ. It works best if you freeze the patties first
