These quinoa bean burgers are packed with healthy stuff and taste great at the same time!
I’m trying to eat less meat these days, which means that I eat more grains and vegetables. And as I’m the kind of person who finds it very hard to resist a good burger, I’ve decided to create my own vegetarian burger that’s not only
This is quite simple, all you have to do is add all of the healthy ingredients to a food processor, garnish with salt, black pepper, and dried thyme. And form into patties! Then, you have 2 choices; you either fry or grill these patties. I normally like to grill, but if I don’t have much time I just fry them in a pan with a little bit of oil to make sure that they’re not greasy!
These burgers are very filling! Many people think that if they’re not having something meaty for a meal, they will stay hungry. Which is absolutely not true, as ingredients like kidney beans, oats and quinoa are great for your metabolism, and they also work to reduce your appetite as they keep you feeling full for a long time.
To assemble the burger, I added some sweet corn, fresh tomato, lettuce, and more kidney beans. But you can always add some cheese (especially if you’re not counting calories), relish, or even pesto!
And the fun part? These burgers do look like meat burgers, can you tell the difference?
