Baked Quinoa Falafel Burgers

Can you tell I’ve been having some major cravings for middle eastern food as of late? These Baked Quinoa Falafel Burgers absolutely hit the spot for me. I contemplated making homemade pitas, but I decided to opt in for the Collard greens instead- a healthier alternative and quite tasty at that.

  • Handful Cherry Tomatoes
  • 1 Avocado
  • ¼ Cucumber, sliced
  • Handful of Mung Beans
Instructions
  1. Combine all the ingredients in a food processor and mix until the it forms a ball in the machine. Be careful not to over-mix it, as that will make it too sticky. Taste and adjust seasoning.
  2. Measure out dough into approximately 1 Tbsp. sized balls. Heat coconut oil in a large, oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Place the patties in the skillet; cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes on each side.
  3. Transfer skillet to the preheated oven and bake until heated through, about 10 minutes.
  4. Serve wrapped in collards greens with all the other fixings you’d like.
