Buffalo Quinoa Burger

Servings: 6 -8 burgers

Ingredients

  • 1 15 ounce can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 small red onion cut into chunks
  • 3 green onions chopped
  • 3 tablespoons buffalo sauce
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 1/3 cup breadcrumbs
  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • canola oil for sauteing
  • 6 GO VEGGIE Sriracha slices or your favorite cheddar cheese

Instructions

  • Place garbanzo beans, red onion, green onions, and buffalo sauce in food processor and pulse until onion and garbanzo beans are roughly chopped. You don't want it to be a paste so don't overmix it.
  • Combine mixture with egg, breadcrumbs, and quinoa and stir until well combined.
  • Form mixture into 6-8 patties. I like to make mine smaller because I feel they are easier to flip. I use the lid of a mason jar to form them, by placing a piece of plastic wrap inside of the lid and then pressing the veggie burger mixture into the plastic wrap. Then just pop out the plastic wrap and you have a perfectly formed veggie burger! Alternately, you can just shape them into burgers with your hands.
  • Heat oil over medium-high heat.
  • Cook patties for 4-5 minutes on each side. For the last couple of minutes, place the Sriracha slices on the patties and cover, allowing it to melt.
  • Serve on buns with lettuce, tomatoes, and additional buffalo sauce.
  • Enjoy!
