Quinoa Spinach Patties

I run a healthy living group on Facebook.  The other day there was a discussion about some Quinoa Spinach Patties from Costco.  They sounded amazing, but the ingredients were less than desirable.  So I decided to attempt a homemade version of Quinoa Spinach Patties based on the ingredient list.  They came out delicious!  This recipe is very easy to make too.

You can eat these Quinoa Spinach Patties on a bun like you would a veggie burger.  Or you can serve them as is with a side of veggies.  I topped mine with a little avocado and ate them with some roasted vegetables.  I am not a big bread fan, so I preferred them without the bun.  These patties would also be good on top of a salad or in a lettuce wrap.   So yum!  These quinoa patties are vegan and gluten free.

Lentil Carrot Veggie Burgers

I just love homemade veggie burgers.   These lentil carrot veggie burgers are my latest creation.  Actually, my husband came up with these lentil carrot veggie burgers.  It’s quite easy with simple ingredients.  Homemade veggie burgers are super easy and always taste better than the rubbery veggie burgers you can buy at the store.  I always make sure to top my veggie burgers with avocado.  It always makes them that much better.  Then again, avocados make everything better, don’t they?  You could eat these burgers by them themselves, on a bun, or even top a salad with one.  Personally, I like mine without the bun and with a side of veggies like my simple roasted broccoli or my maple glazed Brussel sprouts.  Yum!

Acorn Squash Veggie Burgers

I love homemade veggie burgers and these Acorn Squash Veggie Burgers are my latest creation.  Well actually, they were created by my husband, Marcus.  Sometimes you have an idea for an awesome recipe and it doesn’t turn out as expected.  However, sometimes you can turn that into another delicious recipe instead.  That is exactly what happened in the case of these acorn squash veggie burgers.  We roasted the squash a little too long and it could not be chopped into cubes.  So we decided to puree it and make these veggie burgers instead.  One can never have too many veggie burger recipes right?

Acorn Squash Veggie Burgers - My Whole Food Life

These veggie burgers were great on their own with a side of veggies.   They should also work well if they are eaten with a bun.  I am just not a huge bread person, so I usually skip it.  One of my favorite sides to eat with this is my maple glazed Brussel sprouts or my simple roasted broccoli.  If you didn’t want to use acorn squash, this could also probably work with sweet potato, butternut squash or pumpkin.
