Truly, the Best Veggie Burger

By Jessica Riley-Norton
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
Yield: 4 Servings

safflower oil: 1 cup

quinoa: 1 cup

carrots: 6-8

broccoli: 1 cup

spinach: 1 cup

onion: 1

mushrooms: 1 cup

salt: 1 tbsp

garlic powder: 1 tbsp

cumin: 1 tbsp

coriander: 1 tsp

black pepper: to taste

gluten-free flour (coconut flour doesn’t work that well here): 1 cup

1. Bring 2 cups water to boil; add quinoa, and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until water is absorbed. Turn off heat and fluff with a fork. Cover and set aside.

2. Throw the veggies in a high-speed blender until all is finely chopped. Prepare 2 tablespoons of oil in a large pan. Heat the spices in the oil for a minute, and then add the veggies. Saute until soft. Remove from heat.

3. Add the quinoa and flour to the veggies. Mix until a dough is formed.

4. Prepare a frying pan with the remaining oil. Heat oil to a medium heat.

5. Form patties from the dough, and sear each side until golden brown.
6. Place the burgers on your favorite bun, and top with your favorite veggies. I especially love to mix my favorite vegan mayo with chopped basil, and smother it all over by burger… then dip potatoes in it.
