Quinoa and Butter Bean Burgers

Another tasty veggie burger recipe



half a cup quinoa

one and a half cups water

1 tin butter beans

1 carrot peeled and grated

1 tablespoon tahini (sesame paste)

half a teaspoon ground cumin

half a teaspoon ground coriander


Step 1: Put quinoa and water in a saucepan. Bring to the boil, then simmer until all the water is absorbed (about 15 minutes).


Step 2: Rinse and drain butter beans. Put in bowl and mash with potato masher or fork. 


Step 3: Add cooked quinoa, grated carrot, tahini, ground cumin and coriander to mixing bowl. Mix everything together well. 


Step 4: Form mixture into burgers and place on baking tray lined with parchment paper. (I made 7 burgers from this mixture.) Bake in oven preheated to 180 c for 20-25 minutes. Flip burgers halfway through to ensure that they are cooked evenly on both sides. 


Step 5: Enjoy these burgers as part of your lunch or dinner. I had them with baked potato and steamed broccoli. If you have some leftover you can put them in the fridge and reheat them the next day.
