Happy Meatless Monday! We’re nuts about this recipe for Quinoa Burgers with all the fixin’s.
Quinoa Stack Attack
1 cup quinoa
3 large eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
4 slices cheddar cheese
4 hamburger buns
Lettuce, tomato, onion, mayonnaise and ketchup
Whisk the quinoa into a medium pot of boiling salted water and cook until very tender and the grains have burst, about 15 minutes. Drain the quinoa in a sieve and cool to warm.
In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, coriander, cumin, cayenne, 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Stir in the quinoa.
In a large non-stick skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil over medium heat until hot. Place half the batter, in 4 (1/2 cup) measures in the skillet, pressing each into a patty, browning the patties, turning once, until golden, about 6 minutes each side. Repeat with the remaining batter and oil. Transfer the patties to paper towels to drain.
Preheat the broiler.
Drape 1 cheese slice over each patty and place on a baking sheet. Broil patties until the cheese is melted, then build burgers with the buns, lettuce, tomato, onion, mayonnaise and ketchup.
