Modified from Eating Well...Living Thin... (eatingwelllivingthin.wordpress.com). Makes approximately ten burgers.


  • 2 c. quinoa, white, organic
  • 3/4 c. cheddar cheese, mild, raw, organic
  • 1/2 c. cottage cheese, full-fat, raw, grass-fed or pastured, organic
  • 1 med. zucchini, fresh, organic
  • 3 egg, omega-3, cage-free, organic
  • 3 tbs. flour, sprouted whole wheat, organic
  • 2 green onion, fresh, organic
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper, ground, organic
  • 1/4 tsp. cumin powder, organic
  • 1/8 tsp. sea salt, unrefined and pure
  • 1/8 tsp. garlic powder, organic


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.
