Quinoa Burger


  • 2 Cups Cooked Quinoa
  • 3/4 Cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 1/4 Cup Low-Fat Cottage Cheese
  • 1 Whole Medium Carrot, Finely Grated
  • 3 Whole Eggs
  • 3 Tablespoons Flour
  • 2 Whole Green Onions
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Sugar
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Pepper
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Cumin
  • 1 Pinch Salt
  • 1 Pinch Garlic Powder
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil for Frying


  1. In a large bowl combine all ingredients.
  2. Heat a frying pan and a couple teaspoon olive oil over medium-low heat. Mixture will be slightly stick, so using a measuring cup, drop mixture into pan ad lightly flatten to .5 in thick.
  3. Fry until golden-brown, about 4 minutes on each side.

These burgers can be baked in the oven versus frying. To cook quinoa use 1 cup uncooked quinoa, 2 cups water, .5 teaspoon salt. In a medium saucepan bring the 2 cups water and .5 teaspoon salt to a boil over high heat. Add quinoa and reduce heat to low. Cover and cook for 18-20 minutes, or until all water is absorbed and the seeds are tender.
