Place the quinoa mixture in a bowl and using your hands, form 4 to 5 thick patties. Place patties on a plate or tray and refrigerate for 20 to 30 minutes.
Heat oil in a frying pan or skillet. Cook the patties on medium heat on each side for about 10 minutes. Serve with salsa. You can serve the quinoa burger on a bun with salsa, mustard or relish.
