Quinoa and Lentil Burgers


Maybe some of you will disagree, but I think sometimes the best burgers are veggie burgers.  With the right seasoning they can taste just like regular burgers.  And all the fiber in the quinoa and lentils you’re bound to stay fuller longer.  So same great taste with lasting health benefits, what’s not to like?


Quinoa and Lentil Burgers
1 c cooked lentils
1 c cooked quinoa
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
3/4 tsp grill seasoning
1/4 tsp coriander
1/2 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp cumin
1/4 c flour
2 tsp cornstarch
buns (if not gluten free), lettuce, tomato for serving

Add all ingredients to a bowl and mix well.  Form into four patties then place in the refrigerator for 10 minutes.  Heat large skillet over medium high heat.  Cook patties for 5 minutes, then flip and cook for another 5 minutes.  Place on bun with lettuce and tomato and enjoy.

    @theleftoversproject i read a few different recipes before deciding to add corn starch. the flour brings more of a creaminess, but the corn starch allows more thickening since it has no gluten and added bonus it has no added taste. so to sum it up I like a mix between the two, but to each their own.
