Quinoa Burger Recipe

03.31.14 by Jackie

Today is Meatless Monday, so I prepared vegetarian quinoa burgers for the occasion. I flavored them with broccoli and triple cream cheese. The burgers were so flavorful and I felt in veggie heaven; not one second did I crave the meat. 

The reason behind the deliciousness of the burger is the creamy and velvet cheese. The broccoli provided a great contrast of color and the necessary greens for a balanced diet.

 Vegetarian Homemade Black Turtle Bean Patties Recipe

This is one of our family's staple vegetarian dishes. It's rich in nutrients, healthy and very tasty. If, like me, you're not a vegetarian, you won't miss meat with this veggie pattie recipe. The texture is very similar to a ground turkey burger and the addition of garlic, onion, red chili flakes and sourdough croutons brings plenty of flavor to the dish. 

I like using black turtle beans. You can find them in most supermarkets in the dried bean aisle and sometimes in a canned version in Indian markets. You can use most black beans interchangeably, even though turtle beans are a little smaller. Just make sure you don't use black soy beans, which have a totally different consistency and taste.

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!
