Quinoa red kidney beans Patties


Burger final3

About:

I combined my beans with powdered oats and quinoa for the basic patty mixture. Added in sautéed bell peppers, carrots and onions for a veggie boost, and then served with salads and buns as a burger.

Health Benefits:

Red beans are packed with protein and fiber along with several essential vitamins and minerals. They’re also loaded with antioxidants, which help prevent chronic diseases.

Quinoa (pronounced keen-wa) is a grain-like crop with many unique qualities and health benefits such as a very high protein content (about twice that of regular cereal grains), which makes it a great source of protein for vegetarians. It is also a good source of dietary fiber and several vitamins and minerals.  And it’s gluten-free which makes it a nice option for people who are gluten-intolerant.

Yields – 6 to 8
Preparation time- 20 minutes (including the cooking time of quinoa)
Cooking time- 8-10 minutes per patty/per batch

Granola bars are one of my favorite grab-n-go snack foods. They’re easy to pack, store well and can give you a much needed energy boost when you’re out. Plus, they tend to be a little bit healthier than something like a jumbo chocolate chip cookie, which is also a favorite treat.

Homemade granola bars are quite easy to make and definitely fit the bill for a tasty snack. I recommend making a batch of these bars on the weekend and storing them in the fridge to enjoy as a balanced, nutritious snack all week long. These healthy no-bake granola bars are the perfect breakfast or afternoon snack and will keep you satisfied until your next meal.
