Make this for supper! Do it! Right now! These were so good!
I like to throw in a mix of fake 'meat' and a lentil or a healthy grain when I can. Not only for the nutritional value, but also taste (my family can find the beyond meat quite fake 'beefy' tasting). I also like to add in grains to make it a little bit cheaper! Because let's face it, Beyond Meat can be really pricey!
I was a student in university, trying to meal prep while also getting my protein in, so I get the struggle of stretching out your meals.
Okay, enough of the rambling, let's dive in!
This is our delicious 'meat' mixture. Add as much seasoning as you want to your mixture in this step because these are the flavours that will end up being locked in the patty forever!
Now that we have made our master mix, form them into patties! I made 4 large patties with my mixture.
Now that you have cooked your patty, dress her up and enjoy!
🔥Overall Cook Time: 15 Minutes 🍅Prep Time: 10 Minutes
1 Package of Beyond Meat (raw)
1 Package of Casbah Quinoa (200 Grams)
Dash of Salt & Pepper
1 Tsp Crushed Garlic
2 Chopped Green Onions
1 Whole Egg
1/2 Cup Bread Crumbs
1/2 Feta Cheese
1 Tsp Italian Seasoning
1 Tsp Seasoning Salt
1 Dash of Red Pepper Flakes
Fresh Bakery Bun
Sliced Roma Tomato
Handful of Arugula
Ketchup, Mustard, BBQ Sauce & Mayonnaise (all to taste)
Slice of Cheese
A Few Slices of Pickles
In a large bowl combine your meat and quinoa mixture.
Add in your seasonings (green onions, garlic, Italian seasoning, seasoning salt, S&P, red pepper flakes and feta) and binders (egg and breadcrumbs).
Work the mixture with your hands to get it very well incorporated.
Form your patties (as mentioned above I was able to get 4 large patties).
In a large skillet add 2 Tbsp. of Canola Oil (or any other neutral oil) set it to medium heat and let your pan get hot before you add in your patties, because you want a nice crust on the outside.
Add your patties to the oil and let them cook on each side until they are brown- if you flip them too early the WILL fall apart!
Once both sides of your patties are brown and holding together, place on your fancy dressed bun and enjoy!!
Serve with a side of fries or salad and dig in!
