Carly’s Gold Veggie Burgers

Well hello again! It’s been a bit since my last post – home projects and a new work schedule did wonders with my intentions to maintain a regular posting schedule. Nevertheless, I will do my best to update the blog weekly but you know how that can go now…life happens. 🙂

You might recall an earlier post I wrote about regarding eating local – the why and the favorites. Well, I just wrapped another Local Favorites tour at Whole Foods Market SouthGlenn where I provided a tour for participants highlighting some of the local foods that Whole Foods carries. In addition, guests got to taste some of my favorite local foods.

One of the best things about health coaching is providing people with the opportunity to try something new that they likely wouldn’t have tried before. It’s even better when they are shocked at how well they like the food! I love seeing the look on their faces and then explaining the benefits of adding in this new-to-them food…quinoa and kombucha are two that really seem to get people!

One of the new products that I highlighted during the recent tour was Carly’s Gold Mustard.  While there a number of ways I have been enjoying this product (it was also new to me), I decided to make the Lentil Quinoa Veggies Burgers again but add the Carly’s Gold Mustard to the mix for a tangy twist. Yum…that’s all I’ve got to say!

Carly’s Gold Veggie Burgers (gluten free)

1 1/2 c. quinoa, cooked (I used gold quinoa )
1 1/4 c. lentils, cooked (I used black lentils)
1/4 c. Carly’s Gold Mustard
1 garlic clove
2 T. ground flax
1/4 t. chili flakes (optional)
1/2 T. cumin
2 oz. goat cheese

Preheat oven to 400F. Add the cooked quinoa, lentils, mustard, and garlic clove to a food processor along with flax and seasonings and blend, stopping as needed to wipe the sides of the bowl.  Process until a fairly uniform dough is created. Lastly add the goat cheese and blend. Using your hands, form mixture into patties and place onto a lined baking sheet. Bake for about 10 minutes on each side. After 10 minutes on each side, I turned off the oven and left the patties inside for another 5 or so minutes, allowing the patties to crisp up a little more.

I really enjoy having simple things like this made up in advance that I can take as a snack or add to a salad or wrap for a quick lunch or dinner. I hope you enjoy them too!
