Buffalo Chickpea Quinoa Veggie Burgers

Buffalo Chickpea Quinoa Veggie Burgers

St. Patty’s Day comes and goes quickly, but the Recipe Redux is celebrating the “patty” all month long. This month’s challenge was to create a healthy burger or patty of sorts. The challenge was pretty timely because I just made my very first homemade veggie burger about a month ago – Julie Morris’ Black Bean Hemp Protein Patty from SuperFood Kitchen. I even made them at Steve’s request! He loves burgers, whether they contain meat or they’re veggie-friendly – an equal opportunity patty enthusiast!
