Minted quinoa and feta burgers



250g quinoa
2 eggs, beaten
2tsp dried oregano
small bunch mint, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
120g feta cheese, crumbled olive oil, for frying

To serve
salad leaves burger buns


Place the quinoa in a saucepan and cover with boiling water. Simmer for around 20 minutes, or until it is cooked (it will soften and a small tail-like projection will appear on the side). Pour into a sieve and set aside to drain. In a bowl, mix the quinoa with the eggs, oregano, mint, garlic, feta and season with black pepper. The mixture should stick together when squeezed. Shape into 4-6 patties. Pour the olive oil into a frying pan and cook the patties for 4 minutes on each side, or until golden and crispy. Serve with a salad or in burger buns.
