Ingredients

1/2
cup uncooked quinoa, rinsed, well drained
1
cup Progresso™ chicken broth (from 32-oz carton)
1/2
cup finely chopped red onion
1/2
cup finely chopped green bell pepper
1/2
cup finely chopped red bell pepper
1/2
cup finely grated carrots
1/2
cup shredded zucchini
2
eggs
3
tablespoons Original Bisquick™ mix
1
tablespoon chopped fresh dill weed
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
1/2
cup vegetable oil
Mixed salad greens, if desired

Directions

  • 1 In 2-quart saucepan, heat quinoa and broth to boiling; reduce heat. Cover; simmer 15 to 20 minutes or until all broth is absorbed. Cool.
  • 2 In large bowl, mix cooled quinoa, onion, bell peppers, carrots, zucchini and eggs. Add Bisquick mix, dill, salt and pepper; mix well.
  • 3 In 12-inch skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Drop quinoa mixture by 1/4 cupfuls into hot oil; flatten slightly into patties. Cook 6 to 8 minutes, turning once, until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve burgers on mixed greens.

Expert Tips

Cooking the quinoa in chicken broth adds flavor, but you can simply cook it in water, if you prefer. The tiny, bead-shaped grain expands to four times its volume when cooked.

Serve the burgers on a bun instead of greens, if desired.

A small dollop of mayonnaise, garnished with fresh dill weed or other herbs, is a nice accompaniment to the burger.
