Quinoa Burger
Incredible! 5.0/5
(1 rating)

Recipe from http://eatingwelllivingthin.wordpress.com/2010/11/01/love-my-quinoa-burger/ I just substituted organic red quinoa instead of the regular quinoa in this recipe, and added more flour which was necessary to keep the patties together. Also, my patties were smaller so it yielded more burgers.

These burgers are rich and meaty, the kind of burger that vegetarians have been craving. Even meat eaters will appreciate these tasty and fiber-rich burgers.

Cookbook creator says: Think we would love this. Add plain Greek yogurt, lemon juice, and cucumbers as a topping. Maybe a couple kalamatas? Yummy!
