I love this recipe from Jamie who I watch every morning on NY1 here in NYC!
From Jamie: "This recipe is so wonderful because not only is it delicious and satisfying, but it also has the ability to convince a meat eater that life (and dinner) are just as great on the green side. It surprised Brian because it was so hearty, so tasty... and yet, so healthy too. I like my food spicy so if you're like me, have at it and add that sriracha. Serve it on a salad, on a bun, or just plate it with some veggies. Whichever you choose, I promise you'll enjoy it."
1 can cannelini beans
1 cup cooked quinoa
1/4 cup breadcrumbs
2 shallots, diced
2 TBSP minced garlic
handful of parsley, chopped
salt + pepper
juice of 1 lemon
sriracha, to taste
- Place a large frying pan over medium high heat and drizzle with ~2 TBSP olive oil. Add shallots and cook for a minute. Add garlic and cook for another minute until aromatic. Remove from heat and cool.
- Place the beans, quinoa and breadcrumbs in a large mixing bowl. Add the parsley, lemon juice and cooled shallot mixture and set the pan aside but don’t clean (you’ll use this later to fry the patties). Combine everything together with your hands, mashing the beans so that the mixture turns into a paste. Season with salt and pepper and add plenty of sriracha, too.
- Form the mixture into small patties, about the size of your palm and about an inch thick.
- Place your frying pan back on the stove over medium high heat and add a drizzle of olive oil. Cook the patties in batches for about 3 minutes on each side until nice and golden brown.
