See what's brewing!
I’ve been wanting to try more quinoa recipes and after randomly finding some on clearance at Tj Maxx today, I decided to give a recipe a whirl! I chose to try a play on a burger. As a vegetarian, I like to create different kind of burgers that I can enjoy year round. So needless to say, I was excited to try these out!
I liked this recipe too because you didn't need many ingredients so it's pretty easy to just make any time.
What you'll need:
-2/3 cup spinach- cooked & Squeezed dry (I used a package of frozen spinach)
-3 Cups cooked Quinoa
-1 Cup Panko
-1 Small Onion, diced
-1/2 grated cheese
Once you have all your ingredients ready to roll, add them to a bowl & start mixing with a spatula. After a few mixes, I started using my hands to make sure everything combined well. Once it's looking well mixed, you can start forming your patties!
I opted to do larger, burger sized ones but on the flatter side. Choose to do them whatever size you prefer but I recommend not making them super thick so that they can cook correctly.
Place your patties on a greased baking sheet. When you're done making them, put the baking sheet in the refrigerator for about 15-20 minutes so they can firm up.
When the 15 minutes is done, pop them into the oven! They'll bake for about 15-25 minutes, until they're golden. It took us more on the 20-25 minute side for ours to be fully cooked. We flipped them half way through too.
I was really excited to try these when they were done! I was really happy with how they turned out too. They were tasty, had a nice soft texture & were pretty easy to make.
Next time however, I'll most likely sauté the spinach with the onions, salt & pepper to get those onions cooked a little more & add more flavor.
Enjoy making these! They're a great, healthy alternative for any meal or even a snack!
