Always on the look out for a great veggie burger! I saw this online- modified it by not adding the sugar originally called for and adding a scallion and bumping up the cumin a notch.
2 cups cooked quinoa
3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese (or other variety, if you prefer)
1/2 cup cottage cheese
1 medium carrot, finely grated (OR 1 cup shredded zucchini, squeezed)
3 eggs ( 4 eggs if using zucchini instead of carrot)
3 tablespoons all purpose flour
3 green onions, including white parts
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
Olive oil for frying
In a large bowl combine the cooked quinoa, cheddar cheese, cottage cheese, carrot, eggs, flour, green onions, Splenda, pepper, cumin, salt, and garlic powder.
Heat a frying pan and a couple teaspoons olive oil over medium-low heat. Measure 1/4 cup and form into patties about 1/2 inch thick - mixture will be slightly sticky. Fry until golden-brown, about 4 minutes on each side. Makes approx. 10 burgers.
Making the burgers...
**Delicious! I'll be making these again!
