How to make Vegetarian tomato and mozzarella quinoa burgers

Print this recipe
Unlike some other veggie burgers, the recipe below gets a heaping helping of protein thanks to the quinoa base. Quinoa is a pseudo-grain that's rich in protein, making these burgers super filling. They get an added hit of flavor thanks to sundried tomatoes and herbs, not to mention a gooey mozzarella core – just be sure to not use too wet a mozzarella, which could make these burgers fall apart.
You can serve these burgers however you like: they're delicious on a bun with traditional toppings, but they're also yummy in a wrap or on their own with a side salad. A few shakes of hot sauce will liven them up nicely!
