Quinoa Almond Burgers


Makes 6-8 fat burgers

Here is the recipe that hundreds of customers have wanted for us to share from radha eatery in Vancouver. Sadly, the eatery is no longer, so I thought I  should share this with you to make at home!

The ingredient list looks extensive, so I usually double it and freeze some. They cook from frozen as well, bake at 350F for about 1 hour or until firm.



2 sun-dried tomatoes

1/2 onions, diced

2 celery stalks, diced



2 Tbsp miso

¼ cup tahini

2 tsp lemon juice

1  Tbsp tamari or soy sauce (use g/f tamari for g/f option!)



¾ cups quinoa, cooked with 3 cups water – or 4 cups cooked quinoa

* If you soak your quinoa first, drain and use 2 ¼ cups water to cook it. It is meant to be a bit wet for this recipe)

1 cup almonds, toasted and ground finely

1/4 med. to large zucchini, grated

1 cup carrots or yams, grated

¼ cup parsley, chopped

¼ cup fresh basil, chopped

¼  cup kamut or spelt flour (or use brown rice flour for G/F option)

¼  cup nutritional yeast

1 ½ tsp paprika

scant 1 tsp black pepper

1 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp ground coriander



  • Slowly cook items in list#1 in olive oil.
  • Once onions are translucent, blend in food processor with ingredients from list#2.
  • Assemble ingredients from list #3 in a separate (big) bowl and stir to combine.
  • Add wet to dry and mix thoroughly.
  • Bake at 350F for 45 minutes on parchment-lined baking tray
  • Serve in a sprouted grain bun with fun condiments and enjoy!
