Buffalo Quinoa Burger 1 Picture


  • 7 teaspoons canola oil, divided
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped peeled carrot
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/3 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 1/2 cup panko
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups canned unsalted chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons hot sauce (such as Tabasco)
  • 4 (1 1/2-ounce) whole-wheat hamburger buns, toasted
  • 4 romaine lettuce leaves
  • 4 (1/4-inch-thick) slices tomato



Step 1

1. Heat a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add 2 teaspoons oil; swirl to coat. Add onion, carrot, and garlic; sauté 3 minutes. Add 3/4 cup water and quinoa; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to medium, and simmer 18 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Spoon cooked quinoa onto a large plate; cool 5 minutes. Combine quinoa mixture, panko, salt, pepper, chickpeas, and egg in a food processor; pulse until chickpeas are slightly mashed and mixture comes together. Shape quinoa mixture into 4 (1/2-inch-thick) patties.

2. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add patties to pan; cook 3 minutes on each side or until lightly browned.

3. Combine remaining 2 teaspoons oil and hot sauce in a bowl. Place patties on bottom halves of buns; top evenly with hot sauce mixture, lettuce, tomato, and top halves of buns.
