We love all kinds of veggie burgers, but this is one of our favorites. Bulgur can be substituted for the quinoa if desired.

  • Stir yogurt, tahini, lemon juice, cilantro, and curry powder together in a bowl. Serve burgers with tahini sauce.

I left out the peas as I didn't have any in the freezer.. otherwise made the burgers as directed. I found out I am not a fan of tahini so when I had the leftovers of these I used jalapeno ketchup. I preferred this more than the sauce Read More

I left out the tahini sauce and used thai satay sauce instead. The burger itself was had a sweet taste and went well with the satay sauce. Read More

Burgers were pretty good, but the yogurt/tahini sauce was not! I’ll whip up a lemon aioli for the leftovers. Read More
