Veggie burgers are not just for summer. This recipe is perfect for this time of year because they are best cooked on a stove top. They are also healthier than most vegan burgers I have tried because of the beans and quinoa.
I recommend serving alongside fresh veggies. Also, use any leftovers the next day on top of a salad for a crunchy-satisfying meal.
I also like to serve mine with a slice of Chao Cheese, tomato and a simple sauce made with 1/2 cup Follow Your Heart Pesto Vegenaise and 1/4 cup Sriracha.
One of the most delicious things about this nutloaf is that each ingredient presents an individual flavor. The outcome is an entree with a variety of starring sensations that also harmoniously meld together.
I have included, in the directions section, 2 different topping options for making the dish regular or gluten free.
I love kale but I also know a lot of people that are not huge fans of this super-good-for-you food. When I created this salad, that is filling enough for an entire meal, it helped turn kale-no-bees into yes please!
I use quinoa and Trader Joe’s Rice Medley which makes it hardy and nutritious but you can substitute any other grain of choice including Israeli couscous.
