Ingredients

2 2/3 cupscooked quinoa
3large eggs
1/2 tspsalt
1 tspdried oregano (or your favorite dried or fresh herbs)
1/4 tspsmoked paprika
1/4 tspred chili pepper flakes
1/2onion, chopped finely
4 clovesgarlic, minced

1/2 cupzucchini, grated
1/2 cupcarrot, grated
1 tbspolive oil
Garnish
lettuce
pickles, sliced
cheese, sliced
buns
hot sauce or sriracha

Preparation

  1. Mix all ingredients (except olive oil)
  2. Form mixture into patties (should make about 16 patties depending on the size). Add extra breadcrumbs if the mixture is too wet to form into patties
  3. Add oil to a pan and heat over medium-low heat
  4. Add patties to pan (in batches of 5) and cook on one side for 7 minutes, then flip and cook on the other size for another 5 minutes. Add more olive oil to the pan for each new batch.
  5. Serve over salad or in a bun with your favorite toppings! (We topped each burger with sliced pickles, arugula, hot sause & Swiss cheese slices!)

TIP: Make the uncooked quinoa mixture ahead of time as it can last in an air-tight container for a few days, then cook the patties when you’re ready.
