Quinoa Veggie Beet Impossible Burger

Nothing like a good burger… plant-based burger that is! I know many of you love a grilled burger during gathering for the July holiday, but once in a while try something new for a change.

This Quinoa Veggies Beet Burger creation uses a base of Impossible plant -based burgers and builds from there. Adding chopped onions, peppers and cooked quinoa and powdered beets for added color and nutrients.

Add your favorite condiments and I always put my burgers on Dave’s Killer Bread Burger Buns Done Right for that added wholesome flavor! So delicious!

Notes

Melissa's Modifications: This is the best burger creation I have made...texture and flavor is great, you may forget you are not eating meat! Beyond meat will work just as well, use the ground package, not the crumbles, as they do not stay together as well in a burger. Leave the Bun off to save some calories and carbs, the Quinoa Veggie Beet Burger with all the fixings work green in a lettuce wrap - folded in Romaine lettuce or a leaf from a head of Iceberg lettuce.
