Vicki’s Seasonal Vegetable Quinoa Burgers

Seasonal Quinoa Root Vegetable Burgers, by CSA member Vicki


2 cups seasonal root vegetables [beets, carrots, turnips, summer squash (okay, it’s not a root veggie, but it’s still delicious) and whatever veggies you love, grated or chopped in Food Processor]

3 to 4 cloves of fresh garlic or ½ cup garlic scapes

1 cup pumpkin seeds

Olive oil

1 onion, finely chopped

1 cup quinoa, cooked

1 egg (or 1 tsp ground flax seed in 1 Tbs water) – optional

1 tsp ground cumin

Salt to taste

How to prepare:

Stir fry the veggies, garlic and pumpkin seeds in a bit of olive oil (or other favourite oil).

Blend mixture together in Food Processor. Pour into large mixing bowl. Add chopped onion, quinoa, and cumin and other seasonings. Add egg or flax seed mixture to help burgers hold together better.

Shape into patties and bake on a greased cooking sheet at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes. Sprinkle with your favourite dried herbs. Enjoy!
