I like to try and invent a variety of veggie burgers and these seriously are amazing. Most veggie burgers have cooked peas and corn, which are two of my least favorite veggies. I prefer broccoli and sweet potato so that’s what I put in this recipe.

You can always bake them in the oven but I prefer the crispy texture that comes from pan-frying or grilling. If you want to bake, I would recommend coating the burgers in cornmeal first.

I used Cajun Seasoning for a little bit of heat but you can substitute hot sauce or eliminate it altogether. These burgers are gluten-free but if you want them to hold together better, add 1/2 cup of bread crumbs.

Burgers can be made ahead and frozen.



  • 1 cup Red Quinoa, cooked
  • 1 tsp. Reduced Sodium, Better Than Bouillon
  • 14 oz. garbanzo beans rinsed & drained
  • 1 cup broccoli cooked
  • 1 cup Sweet Potato, cooked
  • 1/2 large red onion
  • 1/2 large green pepper
  • 1 tsp. garlic crushed
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. Cajun Seasoning, or hot sauce (optional)
  • 2 Tbl. cilantro leaves
  • 1 Tbl. Black Sesame Seeds, or regular sesame seeds


  1. Cook Quinoa in water, according to package directions, along with Reduced Sodium Better Than Bouillon
  2. In a food processor combine all ingredients and pulse until mixed. Be careful not to overprocess.
  3. Form into 8 individual patties and place on foil-lined baking sheet. Freeze for 30 minutes.
  4. Heat 1 Tbl. Olive Oil in frying pan and cook, 5 minutes per side.
  5. Serve with condiments of choice.
