Quinoa Stuffed Portobello Burger Recipe Recipe

Yesterday, we hosted another dinner party. I opted for a fancy-looking vegetarian course by serving red-quinoa stuffed Portobello burgers and topped them with a slice of grilling cheese. The quinoa provided protein (it has, according to Wikipedia, a protein content per 100 calories higher than brown rice, potatoes, barley and millet), the Portobello mushroom great texture and the Mediterranean grilling cheese subtle saltiness with a rich buttery taste. 

I love using grilling cheese. Since I didn't add any rich ingredients in the Portobello burger filling, I figured a thin slice of cheese wouldn't hurt. This particular cheese can withstand a tremendous amount of heat without melting and develops a delicious golden crust when grilled, so next time you're searching for a crisp topping for your dishes, this might be the one!

Quinoa Patties (Galette de Quinoa Recipe) Recipe

Quinoa is my go-to ingredient whenever I'm preparing a light, gluten free recipe. I've used it in the past in side dishes and appetizers. I've always wanted to use quinoa to make a vegetarian main course, and today I think I've accomplished that.

I created little patties flavored with carrots, crimini mushrooms, eggplant and blue cheese. I bound them using a combination of lecithin and xanthan gum. You could always use eggs instead.  Making quinoa patties is simple. The filling should be moist and the outer part of the bite should have a crisp crunch. And after a healthy, light dish like this one, you can splurge on a decadent dessert. At least, that's what I tell myself!
