Forget crappy store-bought veggie burgers. These are delicious. I used about 1 cup of sweet potato with 1 cup of cooked quinoa and 1 egg, which made 4 small-ish patties. Scale up accordingly.
To cook quinoa, rinse well and then add 1 part quinoa to 1.5 parts water in a pot. Bring to a simmer, lower the heat, cover, and cook until water is absorbed (about 15 minutes). Almost every other quinoa recipe I see says 2 - 3 parts water and it’s why I hated quinoa for so long — it turns to mush! Less water will give you fluffy quinoa every time.
Thank you for this! I know what I’ll be having for lunch tomorrow woop!
Compare the sugar, fiber, and protein.
ALWAYS opt for something that doesn’t have extra added sugar. You get more than enough in a day and it should be the first thing you look at on a label after “calories”.
Fiber and protein will keep you full longer.
Want to bulk up that oatmeal and make it into a meal that will last you ALL morning?
Start with 1/2 cup oats. Add in half a scoop of flavored protein powder, a small scoop of ground flaxseed, and almond milk before putting it in the microwave.
Need more flavor?
Add a teaspoon or two of natural peanut butter.
Craving something sweet?
Once it’s heated up, add a few dark chocolate chips, cinnamon, or a drizzle of 100% real maple syrup. (NOT the low cal artificial kind).
Don’t get enough fruit?
Try adding a handful of your favorite berries. You can even buy a bag of mixed frozen ones and take a handful out the night before to thaw.
Miss the packaged flavors?
Add cinnamon and maple syrup to replicate the “cinnamon bun”.
Diced apples and cinnamon.
Slice a banana and add a bit of honey.
Pizza pizza! Made with cauliflower crust. Meaning no gluten/wheat/bread! Yay!
