Making Quinoa Burgers
Quinoa is a great source of protein and fiber. These quinoa burgers are a great alternative to meat. They taste great and are healthy for you.
- 2 cups cooked quinoa (instructions below)
- 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1/2 cup low-fat cottage cheese
- 1 medium carrot, finely grated
- 3 eggs
- 3 Tbsp. all purpose flour
- 2 green onions, chopped
- 1/2 tsp. sugar
- 1/4 tsp. black pepper
- 1/4 tsp. ground cumin
- 1/8 tsp. salt
- 1/8 tsp. garlic powder
- olive oil for frying
- sour cream
- Cajun seasoning
Cooking Quinoa: Bring 2 cups of water and 1/2 tsp. salt to a boil. Add 1 cup quinoa and reduce heat to low. Cover and cook for 18-20 minutes, or until quinoa is tender and water is absorbed. Gently fluff with fork and cool for a few minutes.
Preparing Burgers: Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Heat a few tsp. of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat.
Using a 1/4 cup measuring cup, drop mixture into the pan and use a fork to flatten into "patties" (approx. 1/2 inch thick). Fry burgers until golden brown, cooking for approx. 4 minutes on each side.
