These healthy veggie burgers are easy to make and packed with flavor!
  • 1 cup baby carrots
  • ½ red onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 bell pepper, roughly chopped
  • 1 can beans, rinsed and drained (black would be best but I used cannellini)
  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • 2 tsp. cumin
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. pepper
  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • A couple tablespoons of flour (depending on your mixture)
  1. Cook quinoa according to package directions. Set aside.
  2. Combine first ten ingredients (through pepper) in a large food processor.
  3. Process until you get a smooth, almost hummus-like mixture.
  4. Remove to a separate bowl and fold in quinoa. Add flour if mixture seems too wet.
  5. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  6. Mold into "burger" shapes (can use a peanut butter lid) and place onto a hot nonstick skillet sprayed with nonstick spray.
  7. Cook for a few minutes on each side, flipping carefully.
  8. When tops are brown and the burgers feel firm, remove from skillet.
  9. Serve on a whole wheat bun topped with salsa and melted mozzarella cheese.
