Quinoa Burgers

Thanks again to Sheryl Wolff for this amazing recipe!  The only thing I changed was to add some peas for taste and color!  I cheated by going to the Whole Foods salad bar and buying most of these ingredients pre-prepared to save on time.

3 cups cooked quinoa

1 can rinsed and drained adzuki beans

1/2 chopped onion

1 medium carrot, shredded

1/2 cup ground almonds

1/4 cup roasted sunflower seeds

1/4 cup cooked peas

2 tablespoons vegan Worcestershire sauce

2 tablespoons soy sauce

2 flax eggs (2 tablespoons ground flaxseed with 6 tablespoon water, set aside and stir for a few minutes)

1 tablespoon dried thyme

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

In a large bowl mash the beans for a few minutes and stir in the remainder of ingredients. Form into 8 patties and cook on medium in a frying pan sprayed with a touch of oil until browned on both sides.  Serve with ketchup, mustard, or balsamic glaze (recipe below)

1/4 cup agave

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

1/8 teaspoon sea salt

1 teaspoon ground almonds

3 tablespoons soy sauce (low sodium)
