Veggie-Free Veggie "Burgers"

A non meat patty that can be used as a "burger" for kiddos who can't have meats and who don't tolerate veggies well, among other thing. Also free of the top 8 allergens, can be modified to be corn free, and free of FPIES common triggers.

Veggie Free Veggie Burgers:
1 cup quinoa
1/8 cup quinoa flakes
1/4 cup uncooked dry polenta OR millet flour
2 Tbsp oil
1 Tbsp honey
1 tsp baking powder (or baking soda + cream of tartar substitute)-- not totally necessary
1/4 tsp salt

Cook quinoa according to package directions. Once all water is absorbed, remove from heat and immediately add polenta (or millet flour), quinoa flakes and baking powder (or substitute). Blend well in saucepan (not on heat). Transfer mixture to a mixing bowl and add remaining ingredients, blending well after each addition.

Form mixture into patties (if they are not sticking together well, add a little more oil) and cook patties in a skillet on med-low heat until nicely, lightly browned. Serve by themselves or on flatbread with Daiya cheese (if peas are safe!).
