Cheesy Quinoa Burger Recipe

Pin It
You all know how much I love Quinoa and vegetarian dishes.  I saw this recipe and was really excited to try it.  I like the idea of having a bigger repertoire of foods that go on buns.  These Quinoa patties were very tasty and my husband and I really enjoyed them.  I put a little mayo on the buns but in the end I felt that the buns were a little overpowering.  The patties are really nice on their own so I would skip the bun and just eat the patty with a little sour cream.

You will need Shredded Cheese, Flour, Green Onions, Carrots, Eggs, Onion, Ground Cumin, Garlic Salt, Quinoa, Cottage Cheese, and Salt & Pepper.

Rinse your Quinoa well.

then cook it according to package instructions.  When done let it cool a bit.

Finely Dice up the carrots and 2 TBSP of onion.

Add in the Green Onion.

Throw in the Cheese, Eggs, and Flour.

Now add in the Ground Cumin, Garlic Salt, salt, and Pepper and mix everything together well.

Add in the Cottage Cheese.

Add in the Qunioa and mix everything together really well.

Grab a heaping 1/3 cup of the Quinoa mix.

Place it in your non-stick skillet over medium heat (make sure the pan has been sprayed with non-stick spray).

Using the measuring cup press down the mix and form it into a patty.

Cook until browned on each side.  They will be a bit fragile so be careful with them. 

Yummy little patties!
