There is nothing like a good burger—a plant-based burger that is! I know many of you love a grilled burger during summer gatherings, but once in a while it’s great to try something new.
This quinoa and veggies beet burger creation uses a base of Impossible plant-based burgers and builds from there. I have added chopped onions, peppers, cooked quinoa, and powdered beets for more color and nutrients.
You can use your favorite condiments too, and I always put my burgers on Dave’s Killer Bread “Burger Buns Done Right” for a more wholesome flavor. So delicious!
