I'm not a fan of quinoa by itself, but these were very good. I think they are comparable to Qrunch burgers, but much much cheaper. They will probably become a regular part of our menu.

The burgers have a great crunch, but are kind of bland. The parmesan that I used wasn't super flavorful, so that was probably part of the problem. Next time I will try adding some spices.

My family enjoyed these, even my long-time vegetarian daughter, who does not generally like "meat-a-likes." My husband and son ate them dressed as burgers. My son said they actually taste like meat. As we'll soon be trying out vegetarianism for a month, this recipe will definitely go in my keeper file. I reduced the garlic and cooked them in olive oil. Cooking them for eight minutes per side burned them. My cooking time was more like half of that.

I never review these recipes, but this one is really really good. I decided to make quiona in my rice cooker instead of my XS crock, so I had a lot left over. I tried this thinking it's fun way to get it down the hubby. WOW he scarfed them I did make them a bit smaller as they were to be a side dish. they are not a side dish. The next day a neighborhood teenager came over and I offered her one, she spit out her gum and scarfed a few more of them, they are this good. I will make them again even though I used red quinoa.
