Quinoa-Beet Cake Mini Veggie Burgers

Just the ticket for a Meatless Monday dinner. Form grated beets and cooked quinoa into patties, then sauté them until crisp. For an all-around healthy meal, top those gems with fresh herbs and goat cheese and place over mixed greens.


¾ cup quinoa
½ sweet onion, minced
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 medium beets, peeled and grated
⅓ cup grated Parmesan cheese
3 eggs, lightly beaten (preferably cage-free organic)
1 cup plain bread crumbs*
Himalayan or sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
½ cup crumbled goat cheese
3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
3 tablespoons chopped fresh mint

*Go gluten free with gluten-free Panko type crumbs or else make your own with this recipe:

Savory Gluten Free Waffles (Use these to make gluten free bread crumbs)

(As always, The Best Years in Life recommends choosing organic content and fresh content as much as possible for the healthiest recipe. Also, wash all fruits and vegetables before cutting or adding to the recipe.)



1. In a small pot, combine the quinoa with 1½ cups water. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce the heat to low and simmer until the quinoa has absorbed all the liquid, 20 to 25 minutes.

2. Pour the quinoa onto a baking sheet and spread into an even layer to cool slightly, 5 to 10 minutes.

3. In a medium bowl, mix the cooled quinoa with the onion, garlic, beets, Parmesan, eggs and bread crumbs to combine. Season the mixture with salt and pepper. Form the mixture into 8 evenly sized patties. (The patties can be made up to this point and stored, refrigerated, for up to three days.)

4. In a large sauté pan, heat the oil over medium heat. Cook the patties until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes per side.

5. Serve the cakes warm, topped with 1 tablespoon goat cheese and 2 teaspoons herbs.

Note: For larger servings, make 4 evenly sized patties in step 3. In step 4, increase the cooking time to 5 to 6 minutes per side. These cakes make great veggie burgers.

Makes 8 appetizer servings or 4 large servings
