vegan veggie burgers


I had actually never even heard of Amaranth until I saw this recipe. Amaranth is a relative of quinoa, so nutritionally it is quite similar.  Amaranth is high in protein, high in fiber, and is very good for digestive health. It is also completely gluten free!

10 Reasons To Use Amaranth in Your Gluten-Free Recipes


  • 1½ cups cooked Amaranth (1½ cups water simmered with ½ cup amaranth for 25 mins)
  • 3 ounces mushrooms, chopped finely
  • 1 cup Spinach, chopped finel
  • 1 Carrot (shredded)
  • ½ cup Oat Flour
  • ¼ cup Ground Flax
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste
  • Olive Oil (to cook)

In a medium bowl stir all the ingredients together – set aside. Preheat a pan. Add the oil to the pan. Using an ice cream scooper, scoop out the burgers into the hot pan. Flatten with a spoon or spatula. Cook on each side until golden (about 4 mins per side).
