Fiery Quinoa Burgers

Directions

  1. In a food processor combine carrots, broccoli slaw and 1/4 cup of the green onions. Cover and pulse until vegetables are finely chopped.
  2. Remove 1 teaspoon lime zest and squeeze 2 tablespoons juice from lime. In a bowl whisk together lime juice and the next four ingredients (through cayenne pepper). Add the carrot mixture, quinoa, beans, and bread crumbs; mix well. Using damp hands, shape mixture into eight 3/4-inch-thick patties.
  3. In a large nonstick skillet heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat. Add four patties and cook 6 to 8 minutes or until golden and heated through, turning once. Repeat with the remaining oil and patties.
  4. In a bowl combine peanuts, cilantro, lime zest, and the remaining green onions. Place two lettuce leaves on each of four plates. Top each leaf with a patty; sprinkle with peanut mixture. Fold lettuce around patties to eat. If desired, serve with lime wedges and sriracha sauce.

*Tip

For 1 cup cooked quinoa, rinse and drain 1/4 cup uncooked quinoa. In a small saucepan combine 3/4 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth and the quinoa. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, about 15 minutes or until quinoa is tender. If necessary, drain any excess liquid.
