Makin' it........

I found this awesome looking creation here at My Recipes blog spot.

Buffalo Quinoa Burgers


7 teaspoons canola oil, divided
3/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 cup finely chopped peeled carrot
garlic cloves, minced
3/4 cup water
1/3 cup uncooked quinoa
1/2 cup panko
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 cups canned unsalted chickpeas, rinsed and drained
large egg (I will substitute the egg and use a vegan substitute, here is a link).
2 tablespoons hot sauce (such as Tabasco)
(1 1/2-ounce) whole-wheat hamburger buns, toasted
romaine lettuce leaves
(1/4-inch-thick) slices tomato


1. Heat a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add 2 teaspoons oil; swirl to coat. Add onion, carrot, and garlic; sauté 3 minutes. Add 3/4 cup water and quinoa; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to medium, and simmer 18 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Spoon cooked quinoa onto a large plate; cool 5 minutes. Combine quinoa mixture, panko, salt, pepper, chickpeas, and egg in a food processor; pulse until chickpeas are slightly mashed and mixture comes together. Shape quinoa mixture into 4 (1/2-inch-thick) patties.
2. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add patties to pan; cook 3 minutes on each side or until lightly browned.
3. Combine remaining 2 teaspoons oil and hot sauce in a bowl. Place patties on bottom halves of buns; top evenly with hot sauce mixture, lettuce, tomato, and top halves of buns.
