Red Quinoa Burgers (with impressive Mooo )
Recipe almost perfect! Moving even closer to a faux burger
with meat-like texture and not created with lab ingredients!
Apple fiber reduces the moisture, adds texture
as well as minimal apple flavor!
Ingredients: (for cooked quinoa)
1 rounded cup rinsed red quinoa
2 cups simmering water
2 tsp red beet powder
3 tbsp virgin olive oil
Med. red onion, diced
5 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp dried parsley
3 tbsp dried chives
1/2 tsp salt
5 large eggs, whipped
3/4 cup fine oat bran
3/4 cup dark rye flour
1/4 cup apple fiber
Into a medium saucepan of simmering water, gently stir rinsed quinoa
and let simmer until most of the water is absorbed (about 20 min.).
Turn off heat, stir in remaining ingredients in order listed except eggs,
oat bran, and rye flour; cover pan and let rest on warm burner 5 min.
Stir in whipped eggs, then stir in oat bran, then rye flour
and apple fiber; stir well for several minutes to complete.
Let mixture rest 5 min. then form into patties and fry in olive oil
(or sesame) on medium heat, until light brown on each side.
Or form into patties on small tray covered with plastic wrap,
top with another sheet of wrap, and press down with bottom
of another tray to create thick burgers. Refrigerate until used.
Excellent, served with Asian flavors, including veggies and sauces ...
or let swing to other ethnic flavors - even barbecue!
Even try faux sausage using those herbs & spices!
Tips: Refrigerate each patty on a square of parchment paper
(or on slick side of a sheet of freezer paper) for easier handling
when starting to fry ... or just press the mixture onto the tray,
then separate into patties when frying.
