Serves: 3

 

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups cooked quinoa*
  • 1 can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 large shallot or 2 small shallots, minced
  • 3 Garden Herb Sunshine Burger patties, cooked according to package directions
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Juice from 1 1/2 lemons
  • 1 tablespoon champagne vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 bunch flat leaf parsley, stems removed, roughly chopped
  • Salt, to taste
  • Sriracha (optional)
  • Harissa (optional)
  • Pine nuts (optional)

 

Directions:

Put all ingredients, except for the Sunshine Burger in large mixing bowl and stir until well combined.  If you like a little extra spiciness, stir in a teaspoon of harissa paste. Crumble Sunshine Burger on top and stir again. Add additional salt, to taste.  Serve into individual bowls and top with sriracha and pine nuts as a garnish.

*To elevate the flavor of this dish, you can cook the quinoa in vegetable broth.  However, quinoa cooked in water will work just as well.
