I grew up eating burgers, unfortunately they were the golden arches. But since then I have created the Ultimate Quinoa Burger that is packed filled with plant based protein, and veggies! I use sweet potatoes, quinoa and flax! See recipe below
1 1/2 cups cooked quinoa
2 tablespoons ground flax + 6 tablespoons water
1 cup destemmed and finely chopped kale
1/2 cup quinoa flour
1/2 cup cubed butternut squash or sweet potato
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
2 tablespoons finely diced onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon runny tahini paste
1 1/2 teaspoons herb de provence mix
1 1/2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon fine grain sea salt, or to taste
pinch of cayenne pepper ginger powder & cumin to taste
BASIL AVOCADO CREAM SAUCE
1/2 Cup Coconut Milk
3/4 Cup Fresh Basil
2 Tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
1 Tablesppon of White Miso
Pinch of Salt & Cayenne
Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Mix the ground flax and water in a small bowl and set aside for 5 minutes or so to thicken.
Combine all ingredients together in a large bowl, including the flax mixture and the 1.5 cups cooked quinoa. Stir well until the mixture comes together. Don't forget the flour because it helps bind the patties.
Shape mixture into 1/4-cup patties with wet hands. Pack tightly so they hold together better. Place on baking sheet.
Bake for 15 minutes, then carefully flip cakes, and bake for another 8-10 minutes until golden and firm.
Cool for 5 minutes on the sheet and then enjoy!
