    the80srule's Note:

    I got the idea for this from a post I saw on Vegweb to give credit where it is due-- but mine changes the proportions as well as the ingredients significantly. If you don't have a 3/8 or 1/8 measuring cup, just use the 1/2 cup one and fill it up to 1/2" from the top with quinoa-- 1/2 cup will be too much, needs to yield 1 1/2 cups cooked quinoa and it quadruples in size when cooked. This is a nice change of pace from lentil and bean burgers.

    Units: US | Metric




    1. 1
      Cook the quinoa by first removing the saponin-- put it into a deep bowl and pour water cold water over it. Whisk heavily with a whisk or fork until a soapy residue rises to the top, then strain in a fine-mesh colander and rinse again. This step is VERY important for those unfamiliar in cooking quinoa!
    2. 2
      Boil 1 1/2 cups water in a pot with a dash of salt. Add the olive oil, dill, black pepper, and marjoram (just a few shakes) and let it impart in the water for a few seconds, then add the washed quinoa. Loosely cover the pot and let cook for 15-20 minutes or until all nicely fluffed up.
    3. 3
      Let the quinoa stand for a minute then fluff with a fork. You may want to wait for it to cool off before handling it.
    4. 4
      Drain all the water out of the tofu pack and dry it out on the stovetop or microwave, but not thoroughly as though you are baking, grilling, or frying it-- retain some of the natural liquid inside.
    5. 5
      Mush up the tofu by hand or with a potato masher.
    6. 6
      Place the tofu, quinoa, and the BINDER ingredients together in a bowl and mix well. Form 6 patties.
    7. 7
      Brush about 1 tsp olive oil onto a cookie sheet and place the patties on it. Bake at 400F for 10 minutes on one side, then flip and bake for another 10 minutes. Turn on the broiler for 1 minute, then serve and enjoy!
