Quinoa Burgers

I forgot about this recipe and was absolutely ecstatic to make them again. They are fabulous, healthy and great twist to your normal go-to quinoa recipes. They are also not your typical burgers. They are bun-less and have about 8 grams of protein per serving.

My family loves this recipe including the little one, except without toppings. :)


  • 2 cup quinoa, cooked
  • ¾ cup shredded cheese
  • ½ cup cottage cheese
  • 1 cup grated carrots OR zucchini
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 tbsp flour
  • 2 gr onions, chopped
  • ½ + ¼ tsp sugar
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • ½ tsp cumin
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp garlic salt
  • EVOO

In a large bowl combine all ingredients.


On a headed griddle to 225 degrees, ladle 1/2 cup mixture about 1/2 inch thick. Cook for 4-5 minutes on each side or until golden brown.


You will notice bubbles begin to form as they do with pancakes, this will alert you that it’s time to flip them.


Flip and cook, another 5 minutes.


Once cooked, place on a serving plate and serve warm.


Top with Spinach, tomatoes, olives, avocado and blue cheese dressing!

I served this with pasta salad! Enjoy!
