Baked Quinoa Dill Goat Cheese Burger Recipe~!

FacebookEvernoteRedditPocketWhatsAppGoogle Bookmarks

QUINOA! A new food to my palette, I love it. Quinoa is a superfood. People consider it a whole grain, but it’s really a seed. It replaces rice perfectly. It’s far superior to rice since it has tons of protein (a vegetarians dream), is gluten free, quicker to cook and tastes delicious on it’s own.

I adapted this recipe to conform to my very specific tastes and I have since made it so many times. These burgers are super easy to make. Smell amazing (my coworkers always ask what I am heating up) and taste delicious, like really really delicious.

2 of my ever so favorite things in the world of food are dill and goat cheese, so combining them was an easy decision (although sometimes when I don’t have goat cheese I use feta). Since goat cheese is such a soft cheese, when you combine the freshly cooked quinoa to the bowl to mix it up, the goat cheese melts, giving every single bite of the patty some delightful goat cheese goodness. And dill. Dill should be added to almost everything.

Quinoa-Goat-Cheese-Burgers-2

Ingredients:

~ 1 cup cooked quinoa (1/4 cup dry)
~ 1/4 cup crumbled goat cheese
~ 1 whole egg
~ 1 egg white
~ 1/4 tsp/ salt
~ 1 tbsp. dill
~ 1/2 red onion (medium) chopped finely
~ 2 cloves garlic
~ 1/2 tsp. cumin
~ 1/2 tsp. baking powder
~ 1/3 cup seasoned breadcrumbs

 

Preheat the oven to 415 degrees. Cook the quinoa according to the package instructions. Mix the cooked quinoa, eggs, salt, dill, onion, garlic and cumin together in a bowl. Add the baking powder and breadcrumbs and stir until just mixed. Let stand for 10 minutes to firm up and cool down. Divide into 4 patties on tinfoil covered cookie sheet sprayed with non-stick spray. Bake for 15 minutes, flip and bake for another 10 minutes.

    This is amazing! You’re amazing! My husband and I are vegetarians who are trying to eat healthy and clean and on a budget and I’ve been having such a hard time finding things. Thank you so much for creating your blog! You should seriously consider taking all of your 21 day fix recipes, grocery lists, and meal samples and make a cookbook. I would buy it. People would buy it.
