Camembert And Quinoa Burgers
Camembert Quinoa Burgers
The Cook & Him
Who said burgers are unhealthy? This vegan alternative is both guilt free and better for the planet while maintaining exquisite flavour. Serve with a light salad or sweet potato fries and you'll have it all on one plate.
50 gram New Roots soft white
1 red onion - peeled and finely diced
1/2 red pepper seeds removed and roughly diced
2 large cloves garlic - peeled and crushed
256 gram cooked quinoa
400 grams of cannellini beans (can be any kind of bean - they just need to be cooked!)
1 tbls tomato puree
1 tsp mustard
2 tblsp Hodmedods Green Pea Flour (or any type of flour)
1/2 tsp salt + few grinds of black pepper
(WINE PAIRING): Natural Red Terres des Bois
In a small frying pan over a medium heat, gently saute together the diced onion and pepper and the crushed garlic in a drizzle of olive oil for 5-10 minutes until softened
Into a food processor, tip the quinoa, beans, tomato puree, mustard, pea flour, salt, pepper and sauteed veg
Whiz until well chopped and blended together, scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary. You want it all quite well minced, not to the point of puree but no huge lumps either!
Dice the Camembert into smallish pieces and stir through the blended mixture. At this point you can store the mixture in a lidded container in the fridge for a few days
Divide equally into 4 and shape into burgers
Sizzle in a little olive oil over a medium heat for 8-10 minutes each side till well golden and crispy
Serve and enjoy! These are fabulous in a wholemeal bun spread with hummus and top the burgers with crisp green leaves and sliced tomato?
