Place the shallots and garlic in a food processor. Pulse until they are finely chopped. Add your chickpeas and quinoa flakes and continue to pulse. Don't puree the mixture; you want it to be a little chunky.
Add the remaining ingredients (minus the water) and process until a dough begins to form. Add water while the food processor is running and the dough comes together. You want to mixture to be sticky, not runny or dry. Place the bowl in the refrigerator and let cool for 15 minutes.
Once chilled, separate the mixture into 8 equal sized patties.
Place your patties on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes. Flip half way through and finish with a quick 2 - 3 minute broil to get the patties nice and browned.
