  • Halloumi cheese
  • Olive oil
  • 1 spoon of Parmesan
  • 1 cup of Polenta
  • Half cup of Quinoa


  1. Boil two cups of water in a pan then add quinoa and cook for about 15 minutes
  2. Add the instant polenta and some water more (check your package for the amount of water needed, generally four times more than polenta)
  3. I tend not to add too much water at the beginning but to add as much as required during cooking.Turn the fire off when the right consistency is reached (not watery but not too dry too) and keep stirring
  4. Add the parmesan and allow to cool down
  5. In the next step you may want to use your hands to shape the burgers so make sure the mixture is not too hot anymore
  6. Once the polenta-quinoa is cooled down you will have something compact to handle.Arrange the mixture in a pre-heated skillet with a little bit of olive oil
  7. I've got light but still tasteful burgers without frying
  8. Cook few minutes per size to get a golden crust.Serve with your favourite cheese
  9. My choice was a few slices of grilled halloumi and scramble eggs as a side.
