White Bean and Quinoa Burgers with Avocado

Quick Tips

Cooking Tip Icon

Cooking Tip: One cup of uncooked quinoa will make 4 cups of cooked quinoa. Use the remaining 3 cups of cooked quinoa for a side dish or freeze it in 1-cup portions to use when you make this recipe again.

Keep it Healthy: Try to have a meatless meal at least once a week. It’s not only easier on the wallet, it’s also healthier.

Tip Icon

Tip: In a hurry? You can cook these quinoa burgers on the stovetop. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 2 tablespoons canola or corn oil over medium-high heat, swirling to coat the bottom. Cook the patties for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, or until browned. (The burgers tend to be more fragile when cooked on the stovetop, so baking them is preferred.)
