Don’t be fooled by the book title. The FastDiet (Atria, 2013), by Dr. Michael Mosley and Mimi Spencer, doesn’t call for a total fast—or eating quickly. Also known as the 5:2 diet, it has you adopt a lifelong pattern of fasting two days a week and being “gloriously free from calorie counting” for five days. On those two fasting days, you can eat 500 or 600 calories—for women and men, respectively.

This quinoa veggie burger recipe is a meat-lover’s burger: toasted pecans, mushrooms, Cheddar cheese, fresh herbs and red quinoa pack this vegetarian burger full of delicious flavor. It’s one of the new tasty quinoa recipes I liked from the last issue of EatingWell Magazine, so I was happy when my husband surprised me by saying, “Let’s make these quinoa veggie burgers.” (He’s mostly a don’t-fence-me-in creator in the kitchen, but he was so inspired by that delicious-looking photo that he was willing to follow a recipe for a change.)
