Modified from Eating Well...Living Thin... (eatingwelllivingthin.wordpress.com). Makes approximately ten burgers.
In a large bowl combine the cooked quinoa, cheddar cheese, cottage cheese, carrot/zucchini, eggs, flour, green onions, pepper, cumin, salt, and garlic powder.
Heat a frying pan and a couple teaspoons of butter or coconut oil over medium-low heat. Mixture will be slightly sticky, so using a 1/4 cup measuring cup, drop mixture into pan and lightly flatten to 1/2 inch thick. Fry until golden-brown, about 4 minutes on each side.
(To help them stay in patty form and not fall apart, I cook them on med-low slowly so they have longer to set-up without burning. Makes them easier to flip, too.)
Coach's Note: Each patty contains about 1/2 carb and 1/2 protein servings.
