It's finally here! BBQ season!
Fire up that grill and get ready for a recipe that will blow your mind: ILIOS Quinoa & Bean Burgers.
Packed with protein and delicious flavours, these burgers are a great plant-based option for you and your family.
1/4 cup ILIOS Quinoa (cooked)
1/2 white onion (diced)
1 clove garlic (minced)
1 tsp chilli Powder
1/2 tsp ground Cumin
1 jar of ILIOS Cranberry Beans
1/4 cup of breadcrumbs
salt and pepper
Preheat the grill to medium. Line with aluminum foil (otherwise the burgers will stick!)
Drain and rinse the cranberry beans and place them in a large bowl. Mash thoroughly with a fork.
If you have a cast iron pan, use your grill to sauté the onion on a medium heat with a little olive oil for 2-3 minutes until the onion starts to become translucent. Mince the garlic clove and add to the pan, stir it around and cook for a further minute. (use your stove as an alternative)
Add the chilli powder and cumin to the onion mix and cook for 2 minutes until the spices are fragrant. Add the whole mixture to the bowl with the beans.
Add the quinoa into the bean bowl with the egg and breadcrumbs and mix everything together. Season with a little salt and pepper.
Shape the mixture into 4 burgers about 1 inch thick. Place the patties on the grill (on the foil) cook for 8 minutes. Then, carefully flip the burgers using a spatula and cook for another 8 minutes. Remove from the BBQ and allow to cool for around 5 minutes before serving.
