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!
- 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).
