Quinoa Sundried Tomato Chilli Chia Patties

I have been such a disaster in the kitchen lately.  I honestly have no idea what has got into me…  I could blame ‘the utensils’ but then that would be like the man blaming his tools for his bad workmanship, so I will own this, I will take full responsibility.  I mean, what is with this…  I overcooked the quinoa the other day until it was literal mash !  Seriously, at times I swear my mind, leaves my body …  where the heck it goes, who knows !

These Quinoa Sundried Tomato Chilli Chia Patties are ridiculously tasty.  Annnnnd, finally I get to share them with you.  After a lot of failed attempts, consistency just not being right, taste lacking ….here they are in all their glory 🙂   Do you know the saying, practice makes perfect ???  It is true 🙂 !!! I have made them like a zillion times now (okay, that’s an exaggeration) but very very frequently. I can pretty much make them in my sleep now, and I just do not tire from them. There is something about these flavours that really work for me. The chilli is not overpowering at all, it is more of a mild twang in the after taste.  My ideal pattie needs to be moist inside, and not fall into crumbs when cutting into it. This is it. These are a pure winner and are fantastic with a salad or roasted veggies !

Quinoa Sundried Tomato Chilli Chia Patties

Preparation time:  15 minutes

Cooking time:  20 – 25 minutes

Total time:  35 – 40 minutes

Makes 6 – 9


1 cup cooked quinoa

1/2 cup cooked brown lentils

1 Tablespoon finely chopped garlic clove

2 Tablespoons chopped Sundried Tomatoes

1 Tablespoon Chia Seeds

1 heaped teaspoon dried Thyme

1/4 – 1/2 teaspoons dried chilli flakes

2 Tablespoons Nutritional Yeast

1/2 teaspoon salt

30 cracks whole ground black peppercorns

1 Tablespoon white rice flour (Gluten Free)

1 whole free range egg plus 1 free range egg yolk


Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius / 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Place all the ingredients into a food processor and pulse several times, until you are able to form a ball with the ingredients.

On a lined and greased baking tray, place the patties and gently flatten slightly. (I used a baking tray with a silicone baking sheet on it…worked like a dream)

Bake until golden brown.

Enjoy 🙂

  2. These could be a beautiful substitute for “burgers.” You can place them on a lettuce leaf “bun” and add some flavoring if desired (I’m a fan of greek yogurt and salsa) Super healthy, filling and incredibly tasty. Can’t go wrong with that combo!! 🙂
