Spinach and Quinoa Burger

 In Recipes and Tips


1C quinoa (uncooked)
1 can rinsed/drained chickpeas
2 cloves garlic
1 lemon (juiced)
1T olive oil
2 handfuls baby spinach
½ cup parsley
½ cup cilantro
Seasonings to taste (salt, pepper, turmeric, cumin)


Start by cooking 1 cup quinoa according to the packaging. Once cooked, let cool completely. Add the quinoa to a food processor along with 1 can rinsed/drained chickpeas, 2 cloves garlic, juice of 1 lemon, 1 T olive oil, 2 handfuls baby spinach, and 1/2 cup each of parsley and cilantro. Add seasonings (salt, pepper, turmeric, cumin)

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Run the food processor, scraping down the sides periodically, until all the ingredients are incorporated. Form into patties (mine made 12) and bake for 20 minutes (10 minutes per side, flipping halfway) until patties have crisped on the outside.
