Friday: Quinoa Burgers (makes 4-5 servings)
For a gluten free version, leave out the bread crumbs and Worcestershire sauce.
- 2 cups cooked Quinta Quinoa
- 1 cup of yellow lentils
- 1/2 cup bread crumbs
- 1/2 cup of frozen peas
- 1 large egg lightly beaten
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 3/4 cup sharp cheddar cheese shredded
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- ½ tsp Worcestershire sauce
- 2 cups chopped red onion
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 teaspoon chipotle chile powder
Sauté the onions with salt and half of the olive oil until translucent.
Add the garlic and reduce the heat. Sauté until the onions are caramelized.
Add the chili powder and sauté two minutes.
Combine the remainder of the ingredients and form in to patties.
Heat the remainder of the oil over medium heat and sauté burgers 5 min per side. For larger batches, sauté just to brown and finish on a cookie sheet in the oven at 375 for 20 min.
