Quinoa veggie burgers

 El found this great recipe online on Martha Stewart living, seeing as I'm vegetarian I couldn't wait to try this recipe so we made them straight away (through out my stay we made them a couple of times and they kept on getting better). 

What you'll need is; 
2 portobello mushrooms
1 zucchini
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup minces shallot
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1/4 cup grated Parmesan
3/4 cup cooked quinoa
2 tsp salt
Freshly ground pepper
1 large egg slightly beaten
1 1/2 cups fresh whole wheat breadcrumbs (I used pinko crumbs) and
6 whole wheat buns (we didn't end up using any buns because the burger itself is so filling) 

To spice things up we ate the burgers with some sour cream and salad!

What needs to be done;

Firstly pulse the mushrooms in a food processor and place into a mixing bowl. Grate the zucchini onto a paper towel to soak up the liquid then add to the mushrooms.

Moving on, heat up two tbsp of oil in a large pan over medium heat and add the shallot and red pepper flakes till softened, add the mushrooms and zucchini, cook till tender. Place this all into a mixing bowl, add the Parmesan, quinoa, salt and pepper. Let cool and then stir in the egg and breadcrumbs (in my case the pinko crumbs), place into the fridge and let cool for an hour.

Lastly heat up the remaining olive oil and start frying the burgers until golden brown and cooked through.

Below are a couple of photos I took whilst making these delicious things..

They were delicious and I highly recommend any veggie out there to make these!

The recipe says it makes 6 burgers but we got more out of it! 

Enjoy :)
