Level Up Add ½ tablespoon oregano, ½ tablespoon cayenne pepper, 1 tablespoon tahini, 1 tablespoon miso paste.


1Add 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.

2Split the mix into 6 portions and form burger patties.

3Transfer 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.


  • Beetroot is added primarily for color, you can skip it if you don’t have any;
  • We used brown quinoa for color but any type of quinoa can be used;
  • The patties can be frozen before cooking and then cooked taken directly from the freezer;
  • You can fry them on a frying pan or grill on a BBQ. It works best if you freeze the patties first.
