Quinoa Burger Patties

A few months ago I experimented with quinoa more and found several recipes for quinoa burger patties. The only problem was they were not gluten free. With a little creativity and my husband as the taster I created these flavor packed and healthy quinoa burger patties.
Quinoa Burger Patties
2.5 cups of cooked quinoa
1/3 cup of chopped cilantro
1/3 cup of chopped carrots or zucchini
1 tablespoon of garlic paste or three garlic cloves minced
1 onion, chopped
1/2 teaspoon of sea salt
1 cup of crushed and ground rice Chex or gluten free bread crumbs of your choice or if not gluten free use Italian herb bread crumbs (click HERE to find out how you can make gluten free bread crumbs way CHEAPER)
1 tablespoon of olive oil (used for cooking)
Mix quinoa, eggs, cilantro, carrots, garlic paste, onion, and salt until well blended. Add the Chex or bread crumbs and mix thoroughly. Take the mixture and form it into a burger patty. We use a 1/2 cup measuring cup sprayed with cooking oil to put mixture in. The cup creates perfectly shaped quinoa burgers as seen in my photograph. If burger patty does not keep form try adding a little bit more of the bread crumbs or if too dry add a little bit of water.
Heat olive oil in a large skillet on medium heat and place burger patties in the pan. Cover the pan cook burger patties 7-10 minutes on one side and then flip your burger patties and cook for another 6-8 minutes. The sides of your burger patties should be a nice crispy brown, but not a burnt brown. Once burger patties are cooked, place them on a wire cookie rack to cool. I find it is good to put paper towels or a towel under your wire rack to catch any of the oil and crumbs that fall off the burger patties.
These burger patties are a family favorite and we have them three to four times a month. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do. You can also make up the mixture and leave it in the refrigerator over night and cook burger patties the next day too. The burger patties also freeze well for later use and can be warmed in a microwave.
