Dudley’s Famous Quinoa Veggie Burgers

At last by popular demand, here is my basic recipe for veggie burgers that are always so popular when I take them to potlucks.  I have traveled with them too and they make a great snack that is pretty much a complete meal
Veggie Burgers Bowl
This recipe makes a bunch of small burgers – vegetarian, vegan, gluten free

Take one cup quinoa and add two cups water
Bring to boil then turn off and let sit with cover for 30 minutes
Mix in finely chopped** 2 carrots, 1 large zucchini, 1 onion, 1 beet or other veggies
Mix in sprouted beans, black beans, garbanzo beans or refried beans
Add tomato sauce for extra flavor but not too much
Stir and season with herbs, sea salt, or Spike (my favorite)
Add in flax flour to create the consistency to form into a patty
Form into patties like biscuits and place on oiled baking sheet
Bake at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes, turn over and cook another 10 minutes
Eat as a stand-alone snack, main course or like a burger with all the toppings
But please, no bread or bun! This is a complete meal with protein, grain, veggies
Great to take to potlucks, lunch or when traveling so you have healthy snacks

Happy healthy eating!  Let me know how yours turned out.  Send pictures.

  1. Carol, let me know if you make these and I love to hear of variations. You can always add more or less flour or nut flour to create the consistency you want. Good luck!

  2. OK, so I am thinking that the red and yellow peppers may have added too much liquid to the mixture. Maybe just stick with the carrots, zucchini and beets for now. (email me the pic and I will post it).

  3. Rebecca, I am so glad you tried the recipe. It’s a process of learning how to get the texture and consistency you need to make them into the burgers. You can always add more flax flour or you could add almond flour or another gluten free flour. More quinoa is another option.

  4. Oh yes Dudley, most of the veggies should be on hand all the time! I added green onions and red yellow and orange bell peppers as well as the list that you gave above. how do I post my pic?

  5. Well, I made them but need to try again! I had a hard time with my blender settings and chop ended up pulverizing the first set of veggies but I used them anyway even tho they were soupy! I chopped the rest with a knife. I need to experiment with herbs too. And I forgot the tomato sauce for flavor!! but since all of the ingredients are yummy you can’t go wrong!

  6. Rebecca, once you get your quinoa and flax, you should always have the other ingredients on hand all the time since they are the basic vegetables you want to be enjoying every day or at least many times during the week…carrots, onions, zucchini, beets, etc. Let me know how they turn out.

  7. Sandy, I agree about quinoa. And you’ll be receiving a free download from me. Glad you like our Soundings of the Planet music. We sure have had fun creating it for the past 35 years! Would love to see some of the paintings you have created listening to our music. Blessings.

  8. Thank Dave for stopping by my blog. Quinoa is about the only grain we eat any more. It is light but with good protein. Peace Through Music blessings to you!

  9. I’m going to pick up these ingredients and give Healthyry this weekend! They sound like a perfect healthy snack!

  10. this looks really tasty! Quinoa is my new superfood! I love it and switch it out for white rice everywhere a recipes calls for white rice! Thank you for sharing and for the free download. I have been a Soundings FAN for many years. I paint to your beautiful music!

  11. I love Quinoa! 🙂 It’s always great to have new recipes to try and enjoy. 🙂 Thanks Dudley! I had no idea you had this blog, I’ve now bookmarked it so I can check in often. Peace.

  12. Jill, let me know if you make these. I would love to hear how they turn out. Take a picture and send to me. These are great snacks for busy people and I know you are a busy girl. Blessings!

  13. Diana, you are right about the typical American diet – it’s pretty bad and the food industry does not have our best interests at heart. Therefore we have to be proactive and search out for ourselves what is truly healthy. Turns out it’s the basics – real food as whole, natural and close to the source as possible. These quinoa burgers would probably agree with your daughter as there is very little here to be allergic to. Hope you try them yourself and hope your daughter likes them too. Keep me posted.

  14. This sounds delicious. I am trying to learn more about cooking alternatives to the all-American diet I was raised on, but do not care for.
    Also, forwarded to daughter Zion. She has multiple food allergies so has a hard time finding foods that she can eat.
