Ingredients:

  • 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
Optional Toppings:
  • sour cream
  • Cajun seasoning
  • ketchup

Directions:

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.

Servings: approx 10
Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Cooking Time: 15 Minutes
