Ingredients

Veggie Burgers:

  • ¾ cup water

  • ½ cup quinoa

  • 1 carrot

  • 1 (15 ounce) can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed

  • 6 small green onions, chopped

  • ¼ cup whole wheat bread crumbs

  • 1 egg, slightly beaten

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin, or to taste

  • ¼ cup peas

  • ¼ cup corn kernels

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

Tahini Sauce:

  • ½ cup plain yogurt

  • 3 tablespoons tahini

  • 1 lemon, juiced

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro, or to taste

  • 1 teaspoon hot Madras curry powder

Directions

  1. Bring water and quinoa to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until quinoa is tender and water has been absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes.

  2. Process carrot in food processor until roughly chopped; add quinoa, garbanzo beans, green onions, bread crumbs, egg, garlic, and cumin. Pulse quinoa mixture until just mixed; transfer to a bowl.

  3. Stir peas and corn into the quinoa mixture; refrigerate until mixture comes together, about 15 minutes. Form quinoa mixture into patties.

  4. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; fry patties until golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes per side.

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