  • In a very large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Meanwhile, divide the mixture into 4 portions and press each portion into a 4-inch patty.

  • Cook patties in hot oil over medium heat for 12 to 15 minutes or until firm and lightly browned, turning once halfway through cooking.

  • Spread remaining 1/4 cup goat cheese over toasted bread slices. Top with quinoa burgers. If desired, garnish with additional fresh basil, diced tomato, and/or sliced red onion.

Cook's Notes:

You can substitute mashed cooked sweet potato for the pumpkin.

Feel free to use spinach in place of the basil.

If you only find regular goat cheese, in a medium bowl, beat the cheese and a few teaspoons of milk with an electric mixer until softened.

My husband and I loved this! Only thing I would say is depending on your stove top I would cook it at a slightly lower temperature because mine burned on the first side until I turned the stove down. Also I tossed the salad on top with a little olive oil salt n pepper. This is surprisingly excellent! I'll definitely be making this again! Can't believe my meat eating husband even loved it.
