Umami Quinoa and Almond Burger
Combining quinoa with raw almonds, these are protein-rich veggie burgers. They are very flavorful without being spicy for little palates. Try serving with sliced avocado.
What you'll need
— 2 cups raw almonds
— 1 small-medium clove garlic, cut
— 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
— 1 tbsp tamari
— 1 1/2 tbsp tomato paste or ketchup
— 1/2 tsp dried rosemary
— 1/4 tsp sea salt
— 3/4 cup green onions, sliced
— 1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes, roughly chopped
— 1 1/2 cups cooked/cooled quinoa
What to do
In a food processor, add almonds, garlic, balsamic, tamari, tomato paste, rosemary and salt. Puree until the nuts are very finely ground, and becoming a little sticky. Add green onions and sun-dried tomatoes, and pulse through until the mixture starting to hold. Add quinoa and process/pulse until well incorporated. Remove mixture, shape into patties. Cook on a non-stick skillet over medium heat, 5-6 minutes on each side. Makes about 6 patties.
