Here’s a high protein veggie burger recipe that stands up to the test whether you grill, fry or bake them.
- 2 (16 ounces each) cans black beans, rinsed and drained
- ½ cup quinoa, cooked per package instructions
- 1 cup bread crumbs
- 1 red pepper, diced
- 1 small onion, diced
- 2 eggs
- 3 teaspoons cumin
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder or 1 garlic clove
- 1 teaspoon hot sauce or bbq sauce or ketchup
Rinse and drain black beans. Mash beans with a masher or fork, leaving some beans whole. Add cooked quinoa, peppers, onion, spices and sauce and stir. Add eggs and bread crumbs and combine mixture by hand.
Take a ball size of mixture and form to make a patty. Place on grill for 3-5 minutes on each side. You can also cook the burgers in a large skillet in hot oil for 3 minutes per side, or bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes, turning over after 8 minutes.
Top as desired.
Depending on size of burgers, this recipe makes 10-12 burgers.
As of October 17, 2018, Canadians will be able to legally purchase and consume recreational cannabis.
Currently, Canada is in the midst of the transition period before the Cannabis Act comes into full force, with provinces and cities across Canada preparing for this day. But what about edibles and infused beverages? Not so fast. Sale of these goods will be permitted within 12 months following the Cannabis Act coming into force which is sometime in 2019. The Government of Canada is taking more time to develop and implement regulations for these goods. Child safety, food safety and dosing standards are just some of the complex issues that need to be considered. Not to mention public education. There is a lot of misinformation and lack of knowledge about cannabis.
