Today we’re going to make some quinoa burgers. Quinoa is considered a pseudocereal. It isn’t a true cereal because it isn’t a grass. However, its high starch content means you can cook it like a cereal. In reality it could be described as a very small nut, measuring about 2 millimetres. It has the 8 amino acids essential to the human body, and this makes it a very complete, easily digestible foodstuff. Traditionally, quinoa grains are roasted and they can also be used to make flour. You can prepare many dishes with it, including soups, breads, stews and salads. It’s traditional in Bolivia, Peru and Colombia. The UN declared 2013 to be International Year of Quinoa.
So out of the many recipes you can make with it, this time we’ll be making some quinoa burgers.

- 650ml Amandín Vegetable Stock
- 1 small leek, sliced very finely
- 2 beaten eggs
- 1 spoonful of chopped parsley

Brown the leek in a saucepan over a medium heat.
When the leek is ready add the vegetable stock, and when it comes to the boil add the quinoa.
