1/2 cup uncooked quinoa

cooked according to the package directions (about 1.5 cups cooked)

33/100 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
3/8 cup minced carrot

about 1.5 carrots

1/6 cup minced onion
3 cloves minced garlic
2 eggs
1/16 cup whole-wheat flour
3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
3/4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons raw sunflower seeds
2 tablespoons olive oil


Step 1 : Preparation

In a large bowl, thoroughly combine the cooked quinoa, grated sharp cheddar cheese, minced carrot, minced onion, minced garlic, eggs, whole-wheat flour, ground cumin, salt, and raw sunflower seeds (optional).

Step 2 : Cooking

With wet hands, form the quinoa mixture into 8 patties about 1 inch thick and place on a clean plate or cutting board. In a large saute pan with a tight-fitting lid, heat the olive oil over medium-low heat. Add the burgers to the pan, cover, and cook until the bottoms are browned, 6 to 8 minutes. Flip and repeat, adding another tablespoon of oil if necessary (the pan should not be dry).

Step 3 : Serving

Serve the quinoa veggie burgers warm topped with hummus and avocado and wrapped in big lettuce leaves.
