Quinoa Burgers

Quinoa Burgers

I don’t know about you, but the thought of tofu burgers, isn’t very appealing. Granted, I’m not a vegetarian or vegan (in fact, I love meat), however, I’m all about great tasting options that are packed with nutrients. That’s where these delicious quinoa and black bean burgers come in. I’ll admit, my husband isn’t a fan, but that’s because he doesn’t like quinoa. I love the flavor of these. It’s rich and nutty, and it’s obviously made with real foods. They’re so easy to make, just combine everything in a food process and then make your patties. They’re great to grill, pan fry, bake or broil. While they can be eaten plain, I found one of the best ways to eat them is served with a side of caprese salad. The juicy tomatoes, basil, a little fresh mozzerella and a dash of balsamic really brought the flavors out of these burgers.
