Spicy quinoa burgers with cooling avocado aioli

In Vegetables We Trust

My twin sis popped over with a bag of quinoa the other day, So naturally I decided to make the healthy grain into a fried burger, as you do…. These quinoa burgers are nice and spicy (and can be made gluten-free) the cooling avocado aioli complements these burgers greatly. 

1/2 cup quinoa
1 cup low sodium faux chicken broth (If gluten free, get gluten free broth)
2 tbsp ground flaxseed
2 tbsp water
1/2 onion, finely diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp chopped red chilli
1/2 tbsp tomato paste
1 tsp sweet paprika
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 cup plain flour (gram works well too)
Pinch o’ sea salt 
fresh ground black pepper
1/4 cup golden breadcrumbs (can use gluten free breadcrumbs)
oil for frying
For the aioli:
1/4 cup vegan mayo
the flesh from 1 ripe avocado
1 tbsp lemon juice
salt and fresh ground pepper
