    Chicagoland Chef du Jour's Note:

    My first taste of quinoa was when we dined in the Stable Cafe at the Biltmore. It was so tasty I asked the waitress what it was and she gave me the recipe. I would recommend using this Quinoa-Toasted before boiling your quinoa. Prep time does not include toasting your quinoa prior to assembly. These can be served on hearty buns or alone. I made 7 generous sized burgers. I cooked & froze the extra burgers for another meal. They are a bit labor intensive. I made ahead, chilled in layers of foil.

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 zucchini, peeled sliced thickly lengthwise
    • 1 squash, peeled if necessary, sliced, I did not use
    • 1 red bell pepper, remove seeds & slice lengthwise into 6 strips, can substitute bottled roasted peppers
    • 1 red onion, peeled and sliced
    • 1 large portobello mushroom cap, substitute several small
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil for brushing vegetables, more for cooking the burgers
    • 1 cup quinoa, raw
    • 4 large eggs, slightly beaten
    • 1 bunch parsley, stems removed, chopped, approx. 1 Cup loosely packed
    • 5 -10 garlic cloves, minced, more or 5 -10 less depending on size cloves, I used 5
    • 1 cup breadcrumbs, plain
    • 1 cup oats, several quick pulses in a food processor
    • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
    • salt, to taste, I used 1 1/2 teaspoons
    • pepper, to taste, I used generous dusting


    1. 1
      Peel and slice vegetables. Brush lightly with olive oil for grilling. Grill until tender and caramelized. Cool down and rough to medium chop.
    2. 2
      Quinoa-Toasted is suggested before boiling your quinoa.
    3. 3
      In the mean time, bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Cook quinoa for 7 minutes. Drain all excess water and cool. NOTE: you are not to fully cook the quinoa. 7 minutes is the suggested time and what I used. It give the burgers a great texture.
    4. 4
      Combine all ingredients. If mix is too wet, add more oats.
    5. 5
      Form patties. I used a patty press. Cook in a lightly oiled nonstick pan.

      Serve with your favorite condiments on a toasted bun.
