Grilled roasted garlic and quinoa burger, served with a side of crunchy cucumber salad.
Burger, made with red quinoa, lentils and veggies. Non GMO and 100 % vegan.
Barbecue season just couldn’t be more exciting, with these low calorie quinoa burgers I just recently discovered and had the opportunity to try!
These burgers are from MorningStar Farms and I got them at Target. They are available at the frozen foods department, where meat alternatives are sold.
I live 2 minutes away from a Target store, so I pretty much shop there daily. You can get all products needed to create this dish at Target.
Grilling is a lot of fun to me, as you already know, so I’m always excited to try new products. (These are just new to me!)
Did you know that meatless, could still be delicious? I’m not a vegetarian or vegan, but I often find myself craving a nice meatless meal. Plus you know I love cooking with quinoa. But sometimes on a weekend, I simply don’t have the time or desire to cook quinoa and make burger patties with it. Especially, if you have people come over and you have to clean the house and go shopping!
So I found the perfect alternative – MorningStar Farms Roasted Garlic And Quinoa Frozen Burger Patties. Veggie Cuisine, you’ll love. They are easy to prepare with a stove top, microwave or grill option. I cooked mine on the grill (400F 3-4 minutes per side, until the internal temperature reaches 165F). Temperature and time may vary, depending on the type of grill used.
These burgers could be served with any side dish of your choice. I decided to make a light one this time, which paired perfectly with the burgers – a simple cucumber dill salad.
These burgers had a deep flavor and great texture. For a quinoa lover like me, it just doesn’t get any easier. Cooking them on the grill was a great idea and made them even more flavorful. They are a good source of protein with just 130 calories per serving and also vegan.
I personally do not need to eat meat every day, especially after finding this product.
