If you’re looking for a delicious dinner in less than 20 minutes, look no further than this burger.

These veggie burgers are so easy and so. darn. tasty. This week I accidently made about 6 cups of quinoa so its been all about trying to incorperate it into any recipe I can.

Therefore, I made a bunch of these babies as a part of my meal prep for the week. I use them in my sandwiches, broken up on top of a salad, or even just on their own with some tahini dipping sauce. This recipe provides an easy base that allows you to mess around with the spices any way you please.

Hope you enjoy!

    This was so easy, and so tasty!!! I didn’t have curry powder so I subbed a cajun spice that I mixed, but used all the other seasonings with a dash of ginger! Definitely a mix you could try many flavors with.

    Sorry if this is a dumb question, I’m very new to meal-prepping. When you make a batch ahead of time, do you cook them all then store them, or do you store them uncooked and then heat them up when needed? Thanks 🙂

      Hi Melissa! I usually cook mine beforehand, let them cool and them store them to be used throughout the week. Hope that helps 🙂
