If you're looking for a change from your usual veggie burger, these ridiculously simple to make quinoa and cheese patties are both healthy and immensely satisfying, and at around 125 calories each, are pretty guilt-free too!
Olive oilif you have a non-stick skillet, you can omit this
Mix the flax with the water, and set aside for five minutes to go gloopy.
In a large bowl, combine all of the other ingredients, barring the oil.
Place a heavy-based skillet over a medium-high heat; brush over a little oil, and drop in tablespoonfuls of the quinoa mix. Flatten down slightly, and shape into circles, squares, hearts, Darth Vader heads... whatever takes your fancy.
Don't be tempted to move them around - you want to cook them for a few minutes until they form a golden crust on the underside. Apart from being delicious, it will make your life so much easier when you come to flip them over.
When you're sure that the underside is cooked (it should take three to four minutes), carefully scoop up each patty and turn it over.
Cook until this side has a golden crust as well.
Serve with salad, in buns, with spicy rice, or however else you like.
