"I made these with leftover quinoa and some vegetables I had in the fridge. Super easy! Great on a multigrain bun with some tomatoes, spinach, and your favorite spread! My 2 1/2-year-old said, I love it Mommy! If necessary, while frying, flatten the burgers with the back of your spatula (but don't make them too thin)."
