As a change from meat, we came upon these ‘supreme crispy quinoa vegetable burgers’ in The Pollan Family Table cookbook. My very hungry son ate 3 of these in one sitting! They are packed with plant protein from the quinoa and the beans, as well as nutritious carrots and scallions. Plus they come with all vegetable toppings of a regular burger. Even ketchup works well with them.
My son is allergic to eggs, so instead of using egg to bind the ingredients, we use Egg Replacer from Ener-G Foods. This makes the veggie burgers a little looser than a regular burger, but with careful handling they keep their shape well enough. Enjoy!
