About this Recipe

Lightly seasoned quinoa and kale veggie burgers. Absolutely delicious and you can choose your favourite toppings!


1 cup (250 mL) Water
1/2 cup (125 mL) Quinoa, rinsed
2 tbsp (30 mL) Olive oil
4 Green onions, chopped
2 Cloves garlic, minced
4 cups (1 L) Chopped kale
1 Carrot, grated
1 tbsp (15 mL) Cajun seasoning
Salt and pepper
1 can (19 oz/ 540 mL) kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 Egg, beaten
1/3 cup (80 mL) Grated Parmesan cheese


HEAT water to a boil in a small saucepan. Add quinoa and return to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered for 14-16 minutes or until the liquid has evaporated.

HEAT oil in a large skillet over medium-high. Add green onions and garlic, cook for 1 minute or until fragrant. Stir in kale, carrots, Cajun seasoning, salt and pepper. Cook stirring occasionally for 5-6 minutes or until the vegetables are tender. Remove from heat and cool.

PLACE kidney beans in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until a course paste forms. Transfer to a large bowl and add cooled vegetables and quinoa. Gently mix in egg and Parmesan cheese to combine.
FORM into 6 equal patties. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes.

PREHEAT BBQ to medium-high. Grease the grill well. Place patties on the well oiled grill and cook for 3-4 minutes per side. Reduce the heat to medium and continue to cook for 5-6 minutes longer or until cooked through.

REMOVE from the BBQ and assemble patties between buns with your favourite toppings.


Try pan-frying on top of the stove. Serve with avocado slices, tomato and spicy mayonnaise.
