Boil about 1/4 pint water and put in it one chicken stock cube and a couple of tablespoons of dark soy sauce.
Let this cool and soak some Quorn mince in it.
Enough for the mince to be just covered by the stock.
Let it marinate, ideally overnight, or at least for a couple of hours.
Drain the Quorn from the stock and mix with,
1 finely diced onion.
1 small beaten egg.
2 heaped tsp cornmeal.
1 heaped tsp gram flour.
Salt & pepper to season.
The mix should be fairly dry.
Again it's best now to refrigerate for a nice firm mix, though you can shape and fry them at once.
They only take 3 or 4 minutes each side to cook.
Hope you like them.

BTW - If you wanted to not use eggs - either a few tbs of pureed tofu or, my favorite, some mashed potato works well as a binder.

My burgers tend to have kidney beans and butter beans, and sometimes chickpeas mashed roughly with mashed potato, sweetcorn, wilted spinach, cumin, smoked paprika and a teeny bit of marmite. Add some veg stock and a mix of soya mince and/ all breadcrumbs. Form in to patties and bake or fry.
Ketchup is obligatory.
