Quinoa, beet and mushroom burger

Hello Summer!! This recipe is the perfect summer dinner. 😉 These burgers are easy to make and they taste juicy and moist. I have had my share of veggie burgers and they are definitely hit or miss. These are great because of the contrast of sweet from the beets and savoury from the beans. I served mine with a kale and brussels sprout salad, delish. If you are normally a ground beef burger connoisseur, I encourage you to try this recipe. I think you will be nicely surprised. I hope you all are enjoying these hot summer days…. I know I am!
