Introduction

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.

    1/2 cup cottage cheese

    I love the base recipe. I used more spices to up the flavor and topped with roasted mushrooms which I may add to the mix the next time...Yes there will be a next time. - 1/30/20
