Sun dried tomato quinoa burgers

  •  This week we are trying vegan recipes.  This is a nice vegan burger that gets protein from cheese and quinoa instead of meat.

  • 1 cup  quinoa
  • 2 c. broth
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheese
  • 2/3 c. sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 1/2 eggs (I usually beat a whole egg, then half it)
  • 3 tablespoons flour (you can use coconut flour for GF)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped scallion/green onions
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • To cook quinoa (makes 3 cups)
  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  1. Rinse quinoa in a mesh strainer with water.
  2. In a sauce pan over medium heat, add 2 teaspoons olive oil. 
  3.  Add the quinoa to the pan and stir for about 2 minutes.
  4. Add broth and salt to the quinoa.  Bring to a boil.
  5.   Simmer on medium-low heat, covered. for 15 minutes.  Fluff with a fork.
  6.  Burgers
  7. Add 1 c. of the cooked quinoa plus  all of the ingredients together to make the burgers.
  8. Divide into 4 burgers on a parchment paper (or just a place).
  9. Heat the oil in a large pan over medium-high heat.
  10. Test to ensure the oil is hot enough (but not burned) by breaking off a piece of one of the burgers. If it sizzles, it is hot enough.
  11. Add the burgers into the pan. Allow to cook for 2-3 minutes on one side, then flip.
  12. Cook for 2-3 minutes on this side. It should be golden brown. If not, cook for one minute extra on each side.
