These patties are nutritious and flavourful. They hold together well, however, I'm not sure I'd encourage them on a bun as a burger substitute. But they are great on their own with a salad or other side. They don't really need toppings, but if you like go ahead and add lettuce, tomato, relish etc.
In medium pan, melt a bit of coconut oil and begin sauteeing onion, as it cooks add in carrot, broccoli and seasonings. Sautee for a few minutes, until vegetables are tender.
Put the quinoa in a medium bowl then add the egg and yeast flakes - mix. Then add remaining cooked ingredients and mix again. You will find hand mixing is best for this. Form into patties and return to the pan (adding more oil if necessary) and cook several minutes on each side, until brown and cooked through.
