Beet quinoa burger.
Oh this dreamy, protein-packed burger hit the spot yesterday not to mention, allowed me to use up the beets harvested from our garden last week. Okay, so you’re thinking you dislike the earthly flavor of beets, right? My husband’s main complaint until I made these burgers during football Sunday. I didn’t mention what was in them, after all he was paying more attention to the game and was too busy screaming at the television. I created this super flavorful burger and put it in from to him and he loved it. Then I divulged the ingredients. He was shocked.
The burger pan fries up so beautifully. Crispy exterior with a nice crunch. The flavors are wonderful. This recipe made 8 burgers (not huge or too small). They keep in the fridge or freezer if packaged well. Perfect make-ahead food for the week. I prefer to add these to a big salad in lieu of a bun (which I don’t eat). They were a hit and let’s face it… the protein in quinoa is more than beef so this is a big time winner especially after my run yesterday. Okay enough rambling… let’s get to this!
