  • ½ cup quinoa (100 g)
  • cup mushrooms - sliced (140 g)
  • 5 sun-dried tomatoes - diced see notes
  • 4 tbsp oat flour
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce or coconut aminos
  • 2 tbsp ground flax seeds
  • 1 tbsp parsley - chopped
  • 1 tbsp coriander - chopped
  • 1 garlic clove - minced
  • 1 small shallot - minced
  • canola oil optional


  • Rinse the quinoa and cook in 1 cup of water (250 ml) for 15 minutes or until the water is absorbed.
  • Mix the ground flax seeds with 6 tablespoons of water, set aside for 15 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 400°F - 200°C.
  • In a frying pan, heat up the olive oil and saute the mushrooms with the garlic for about 5 minutes.
  • Once cooked, dice the mushrooms.
    Put them in a bowl along with the cooked quinoa, sun-dried tomatoes, parsley, coriander, garlic and shallot. Mix, and incorporate the flax seed "eggs", and soy sauce. Lastly, add the nutritional yeast and oat flour.
  • Divide the dough in 10 pieces and shape the patties with wet hands - I use a yellow ice-cream scoop and press them down with the palm of my hand. Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
    Brush or spray with a bit of canola oil (optional).
  • Bake for 15 minutes.


  • I used white quinoa but any kind of quinoa can be used in this recipe.
  • Use white or brown button mushrooms, or shiitakes. To clean, you can brush them with a cloth or peel them. I personally don’t like to immerse them in water as they get soggy.
  • Sun-dried tomatoes in oil need to be well drained. If using sun-dried tomatoes that are not in oil, soak them for at least 30 minutes, and patch them dry before using.
  • Remember to buy oat flour that is certified gluten free if needed, to avoid cross contamination. You can also use any type of oats and reduce them into flour or at least smaller pieces with a food processor.
  • Parsley and coriander are a nice pairing with the other ingredients but other herbs could work such as basil, thyme, or rosemary.
  • Depending on how you want to eat them, these quinoa patties can be made in different sizes and shapes. Just remember to adjust the baking time.
  • To reheat, use a non stick frying pan with a bit of oil.
