Apple Quinoa Burgers

I love a good filling meal in the evenings. And it's great to come up with a great new burger with new satisfying whole foods protein sources and high nourishment potential. I love this "accidental" burger that started with wanting to use up chickpeas, a half a dish of quinoa leftover, and my son's apple he wanted and then didn't want. What resulted is a yum yum yummy dish I will definitely be making again. 

Boil together:

1 celery stalk, chopped, with leaves

1/2 cup quinoa

Also, sauté in 2 Tablespoons coconut oil

1/3 cup onion

2 carrots chopped

2 cloves garlic

Add 1 chopped apple towards the end 

In a separate bowl:

3 Tablespoons flax seeds soaked in 3 Tablespoons water

1/3 cup oat flour

1 can mashed chickpeas

1/4 teaspoon each of cumin, coriander, salt and pepper, and pinch of cayenne

Patty them up and either bake at 425° for 10 minutes or sauté in a little coconut oil.

Spread hummus and sprouts on top, serve with or without a gluten-free bun and enjoy!  Makes about a dozen.
