Quantity Ingredient
3/4 cup quinoa, uncooked
1 1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons olive oil
6 cups cauliflower rice
1 tablespoons cumin
2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
3/4 cup Panko bread crumbs
3/4 cup pepper jack cheese
3 eggs
1/2 teaspoon salt
  • In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, combine quinoa with water and cook until water is absorbed, about 20 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  • Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add in cauliflower, cumin, paprika, cayenne pepper and garlic and cook for 5 to 6 minutes or until slightly tender.
  • In a large bowl, combine quinoa, cauliflower, bread crumbs, cheese, eggs and salt. Form into 12 patties.
  • On a grill, or in a nonstick pan over medium heat, cook the burgers until golden brown on each side, flipping carefully - about 4 to 5 minutes per side.
  • Serve on whole-wheat buns with toppings of choice.
*Toppings (optional): purple cabbage, cilantro, Bolthouse Farms salsa ranch salad dressing, whole-wheat buns.
