Processed veggie store-bought burgers have so much “artificial” crap in them, I decided to start making my own! I love quinoa & beans and just added all my favorite veggies! Eat them with a salad topped with avocado or how ever you like your “burgers” and enjoy!
3 cups of Quinoa (cooked in low sodium veggie broth)
1 can of Kidney or black Beans
1 small zucchini chopped
3/4 cup of red & yellow bell peppers
2 gloves of garlic chopped
3/4 cup of green onion chopped
1/2 cup of cilantro
few leaves of basil
1 jalapeño (optional)
2 eggs beaten (Can substitute flax egg if vegan)
3/4 cup of shredded carrots
1/2 cup of chopped brown mushrooms
1/2 cup of chopped spinach
1 1/2 cups of Bob mills brown rice flour
6 tbsp of olive oil or coconut oil
Heat 3 tbsp oil in a skillet, add all veggies , garlic and onion and sauté until slightly soft. Remove from heat cool for a few minutes. Combine beans, cilantro and basil; to your food processor and pulse until chunky. Blend mixture with quinoa ,and any extra seasonings you wish to add. Add in beaten eggs and 1/2 cup of flour and mix well.
Form into patties and refrigerate for about 10 minutes. Coat patties on each side with remaining flour. Fry in remaining oil until browned about 4-5 minutes on each side.
