We’re always on the lookout for a good veggie burger. We have a great black bean burger (adapted from Rebar), a good white bean and walnut burger, and now….a quinoa burger??! That’s right.
It’s pretty good! Sometimes the black bean burger weighs a person down. This is a lighter burger with a fresh taste, great for condiments and –no beans!

From Chatelaine magazine

1/2 cup uncooked quinoa (about 2 cups cooked)
1 tsp vegetable oil
1/2 227 g pkg cremini mushrooms, coarsely grated (1 cup)
1 cup coarsely grated zucchini
3/4 cup coarsely grated carrot
1 small shallot, minced (i just used some onion)
1 garlic clove, minced
1 egg, beaten
3 tbsp cornstarch
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper

Cook the quinoa in 2 cups water til water is absorbed (maybe use a bit less water next time). Saute veggies. Mix ingredients with quinoa. Press into burgers and fry in a pan!
