Take 2 of Meatless “Burgers”…

Last night we mixed two recipes: Whole Living’s Greek-Style Quinoa Burgers and Zucchini Patty Sandwiches from an earlier post. Basically, we used:

  • 1/2 cup quinoa cooked in 3/4 cup white wine
  • 1 medium zucchini
  • 1/2 can chick peas
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped roasted red pepper
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • salt and pepper (and whatever other seasonings you like)
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten (I found I needed to add 1/2 of another egg)
  • 1/3 cup panko

We formed the patties and then grilled them, of course. Then served them in/on pita pockets with lettuce, cucumbers and black olives. I also had some leftover herb mixture from the night before (basil, parsley, fresh garlic, sea salt, pepper, tomato/garlic seasoning, red pepper flakes) that I mixed with a few Tbsp of sour cream to add a little extra something. Here’s a pic of the finished product… I forgot to take a picture until after I had eaten about half of it… it was just too good to stop myself, haha.

On the menu for tonight: Grilled Ratatouille Pasta.
