    It’s been a long time to share a Veggie Friendly Recipe on TDK:
    Ta Da – here’s a new one!

    quinoa chickpea burgers
    Burgers from Meat Out Monday for Any Day of the Week!

    Sort of reminds me of Falafel but as a burger!

    Quinoa Chickpea Veggie Burgers
    Contributing recipe author, Lauren Bossi from Plant-Based on a Budget brings us a fast and easy one this week featuring healthful ingredients! These quinoa-based burgers take only 20 minutes to prepare and can easily be reheated or enjoyed cold. Lauren says she often makes a bunch in one go, for the week ahead, and then puts the patties into sandwiches, crumbles them atop salads, or eats them on their own with some tahini dipping sauce. Yum!

    1 cup cooked quinoa
    1 cup cooked chickpeas
    1 cup finely chopped veggies (try kale, onions, and carrots!)
    1/4 cup chickpea flour (or flour of choice)
    1 tsp. curry powder
    1/2 tsp. cumin
    1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
    Salt, to taste
    Black pepper, to taste

    burger nutrition

    1. In a large bowl combine all ingredients to form the burger mixture (add a dash of water to help incorporate, if needed).
    2. Form into 6-8 burger patties.
    3. Heat a skillet over medium heat, then add a dash of cooking/oil spray and cook burgers until each side is golden brown.
    4. Place finished burgers on your favorite toasted bun (or maybe between a couple of lettuce leafs), add toppings of choice (try tomato, avocado, lettuce, spinach, hot sauce, etc.).
    5. Serve warm. Enjoy!



    Thanks, Jeankit, those do look good. Chickpea flour is a useful ingredient and used from the Mediterranean to South Asia. I like the idea of lettuce leaves; a big Romaine (Cos) lettuce leaf makes a great wrapper.

    Plant-based on a budget looks like a congenial site. They are showing a beautiful baked ratatouille (similar to a Turkish and Greek Imam bayildi) that would be spectacular to serve to company, and not expensive this time of year. http://plantbasedonabudget.com/recipe/baked-ratatouille/ Not being a vegan (and few of my friends are) I might sprinkle just a bit of grated pecorino romano on that – though of course it shouldn’t be one of those over-rich dishes swimming in cheese. The late summer vegetables must remain the focus. We don’t have a lot of eggplant yet, and none of the light violet and cream Sicilian type with creamy flesh… Soon.

    But the burgers are something I’ll make just for myself and any (human) friends who show up. We had a visit from a large, handsome grey tomcat this morning. Livia made no attempt to expel him from her territory; I think she likes him (both are neutered).

    You are welcome Lagatta. I did find some falafel burgers at my Co-Op/Outpost in frozen food dept. May try them next time need burgers! I enjoy falafel very much…they were out of them for a couple weeks as looking for new vendor/Aladdin…I had to temporarily source them out from Middle Eastern Restaurant…larger more crunchie…still good! New ones from co-op are more tender and not as crunchie/fried coating…Yummmers!

    Aladdin’s yummy meal as eye candy 🙂



    I do like crunchy falafel, but of course they are fried, so I certainly can’t eat them every day or even every week.

    As you know, I live a few minutes’ walk from the largest public (farmers’) market north of the Rio Grande in North America. That was deliberate.
