Quinoa & Sun-dried Tomato Burger

4 Oct

Alright people, because it’s MoFo and MoFo is about sharing… I’m sharing my super secret burger recipe with you! This a delicious burger that has never let me down; everyone I’ve served it to loves it. The outside gets nice and crispy, while the inside stays moist. It’s perfect on a toasted bun with the garlic aioli on top. Warning: you will have garlic breath afterwards!

    Yum! Nice job. :-) I’ll be trying this soon. I like to collect good vegan burger recipes that don’t contain mushrooms, because my boyfriend fears them. Yay MoFo!

    This sounds awesome. I’ve never tried using quinoa in a burger. I’m gonna remedy that situation!
