Veggie Wedgy Burger

This summer barbecue favorite has turned into a staple in our home. Even my husband gives up steak and eats these veggie wedgies.

Ingredients:

1 cup chickpeas soaked over night or 1 can

1/2 cup tri-colors quinoa (I haven’t tried with plain quinoa

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 to 3 tablespoons water

Spices (spice to taste) cumin, paprika, garlic power, onion powder, black pepper

1/2 cup almond flour set aside. Spice to taste with the spice ingredients above

Directions:

Place chickpeas, quinoa, and oil in Ninja and mix until ground up. Add spices and mix again. Add water until the consistency is like raw hamburger. Form patties and place in spiced almond flour to coat. Cook in oven 350, on the grill on a piece of foil, or on stove top with a little cooking spray. We even cook these in our air fryer. They cook quickly so keep an eye on them. We like our a little chard when we grill. Use a lettuce wedge and you have a veggie wedgy!  

If you’re wondering about the BBQ veggies it’s a mix of what’s in our fridge. Zucchini, onions, tomatoes, red bell peppers, seasoned with garlic, onion, pepper and red peppers.
