2 tsp chopped mint leaves
5-6 sprigs of spring onions finely chopped

    1. Step 1

      Cut the Bakers Delight Chia Omega-3 Wholemeal Rolls into half, spread a light layer of the epic sauce on the bottom half.

    2. Step 2

      Top with oak leaf lettuce, quinoa patty and tomato slices.

    3. Step 3

      Now add a tablespoon of the epic sauce and place the bread roll top. Serve as whole or cut in half.

  2. Quinoa Patties

    1. Step 1

      Combine all the ingredients listed above except the eggs. Add the eggs and mix well until the entire mixture comes together.

      Shape the mixture into 12 burger like patties. Heat a medium-sized fry pan coating the base with cooking oil. Place about 6 patties with enough room to flip.

      Bring the heat to medium and cook for about 67 minutes or until the cakes are golden brown on either side.

  3. Totally epic sauce
