1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1 cup cooked quinoa
3/4 cup flax meal
1 1/2 tsp lemon juice
Finely chop mushroom. Grate zucchini and absorb extra moisture with towel. Cook shallot, pepper x2 min in oilive oil. Add mushroom and zucchini x2 min. Mix in bowl with quinoa and salt and pepper. Add flax meal, lemon juice and 1/4 cup mashed sweet potato. Combine all and add more sweet potato as needed to bind. Divide into 4 patties and cook on stove top until golden about 2 min per side. If you cook on the grill, add a piece of foil under the burger and cook like normal.
These were super tasty served with avocado and hot sauce. I use the Ezekiel buns because the I like the whole sprouted grains that are so healthy. On the down side, they did not hold together great. I froze the remaining ones and they held together even less well but were equally delicious.
