I'm going to try this with regular (i.e., not red) quinoa, in the hope that they will be less dry and crumbly. But they're really good as is. Also, leaving the cheese out to make them parve did not significantly affect the flavor or texture.
Quinoa Veggie Burger
From EatingWell: March/April 2013
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. Red quinoa, which you can generally find in stores where white quinoa is sold, gives the quinoa veggie burgers the perfect color. If you can only find white quinoa, that’s fine too. These quinoa veggie burger patties hold together well for freezing, making for a quick and easy meal. Defrost overnight in the refrigerator before cooking. Serve with your favorite burger garnishes.

10 Reviews for Quinoa Veggie Burger
Good flavor, I love using duxelles for beefy flavor and I think that is why this recipe was so successful. I usually don't put cheese inside burgers, but the burnt cheese also added great flavor. Loved it!
I followed the recipe to a tee. It was very bland. Very dry. I eat and make a lot of veggie burgers and this was not tasty at all.
It was really delicous burger recipe, but i would like to know, how can u replace egg?
These are the first veggie burgers I've ever made, and I will never go back to store bought frozen veggie burgers again. They were SO good! When I tasted a piece of the burger on it's own, there was a strong mushroom flavor, bur once on a bun with lettuce, tomato and onion, the strong mushroom flavor mellowed out and it was just delicious. I used regular organic rolled oats instead of quick cooking oats, and they worked great. I also used white quinoa as I had a lot on hand. Even when I ate meat, I always drenched my burgers in BBQ sauce, but I just at these with lettuce, onion and thinly sliced tomato fresh from my garden, and found it to be very satisfying! I'm the only vegetarian in my house so I wrapped these burgers in wax paper, and then tin foil and froze them. They reheat perfectly in a skillet. I will definitely keep these on hand during the summer months! I think I need to try some topped with hot peppers and avocado too.
