Embrace this filler-free, super-nutritious Quinoa-veggie burger. Sandwiched between two grilled portobello mushrooms, it’s got healthy and tasty covered.( I got this recipe from chatelaine but I tweaked it a bit)

  • 1/2 c. quinoa, white, organic
  • 1 tsp. coconut oil, raw, extra-virgin, organic
  • 1 c. zucchini, fresh, organic
  • 3/4 c. carrot, fresh, organic
  • 1 shallots, fresh, organic
  • 1 garlic, fresh, organic
  • 1 egg, omega-3, cage-free, organic
  • 3 tbs. arrowroot powder, organic
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt, unrefined and pure
  • 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper, powder, organic

Cook quinoa according to package directions, omitting salt, about 14 min. Transfer to a large bowl.

Heat a large, wide non-stick frying pan over medium. Add oil, then mushrooms, zucchini, carrot, shallot and garlic. Cook until soft, about 5 min. Add to quinoa. Stir in egg, arrowroot flour , salt and cayenne. Heat the same non-stick frying pan over medium. Firmly press quinoa mixture into a 1/2-cup measuring cup. Turn and release into pan. Gently press to shape into a patty about 4 in. wide. Repeat, cooking 2 patties at a time. Cook until golden and warmed through, about 4 min per side. Top with tahini sauce and roasted plum tomatoes.
