In the mood for a burger? This chipotle quinoa burger is loaded with protein, fiber and other nutrients and just happens to be delicious.
1 cup cooked quinoa
1/2 cup mashed white beans,
1/2 cup ground flax seed
2 tbsp chia seeds
1 cup chopped veggies-(I used zucchini, garlic, red pepper and spring onions)
1 tsp salt
1 tsp smoked paprika,
1 tsp chipotle chile pepper
1/4 cup water
1 cup raw unsalted cashews, soaked in water for 2 hours
1 cup water
1 tbsp Mrs Dash Chipotle seasoning
juice of 2 limes and lime zest to taste
1 /2 tsp sea salt
1 white onion, sliced into rings
3 tbsp coconut oil
3 tbsp maple syrup
Mix burger ingredients. Let set for 15 minutes and then form 4 burgers. Bake 375 for 40 minutes, turning after 20 minutes. (I used parchment paper w/olive oil to prevent sticking.) Brush portobello mushrooms with oil and bake or grill for 10 minutes.
Blend all chipotle sauce ingredients in blender.
Combine onion, coconut oil and maple syrup in pan and cook over medium heat until onions are soft.
Build your burger with grilled portobello mushrooms, carmelized onions, avocado, greens and chipotle sauce. Enjoy!
