Naturally, I wouldn’t ask if you could make an edible veggie burger with quinoa unless I had the answer, and the answer is an emphatic – yes!

I admit I was dubious when I started combining the ingredients for this meat-free burger from Cuisine Diva. The mixture was loose, and didn’t feel like it would hold together in the pan.

But as you can see, with just a bit of shaping, they stuck together just fine, and flipped easily without breaking into a million pieces.

Thanks for the recipe Cuisine Diva! Your combination of vegetables, herbs, cream cheese and mozzarella made a fantastic burger. My husband ate two!

      Can you take a gluten free bread like Rudi’s and turn it into bread crumbs? My daughter-in-law and a good friend eat GF – I know it can be a challenge for some ingredients.

    Good for you to get your quinoa burgers to stick together!! I made some quinoa and smoked salmon patties that were delicious, but most turned in to quinoa “hash” as opposed to patties. Congrats :-)
