Low Glycemic Recipe of the Week: Homemade Quinoa Masala Burgers


The best part is that you can make several ahead of time and either freeze or refrigerate them for later. They also make a perfect burger to bring over to a cook out. Just have the grill master pop them on the grill to reheat and you’ve got a delicious plant based protein packed meal.

1/2 cup quinoa dry (cooked to package instructions)
1 baked sweet potato with skin removed

1/2 tsp garam masala
1/2 tsp curry powder
1/4 tsp mustard seed
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper

    These look good, I like that you bake them instead of trying to cook them on the stove, less potential for falling apart.
