Quinoa, Burger Crumbles And Veggie Dish

Here is a recipe of something I made for a meal.  It was just one of those moment creative dishes.  While it is nothing fancy, it did taste very good and was simple to make.  You can alter it in any form that you like, but to give some framework, here is the recipe for Quinoa, Burger Crumbles and Veggie Dish.

Quinoa, Burger Crumbles And Veggie Dish


Ingredients:
  • 2 Ears of Sweet Corn
  • 1 Green Pepper
  • 1 Yellow Squash
  • 1 Zucchini
  • 1 Broccoli Head
  • 1 Bag of Burger Crumbles (Morningstar)
  • 1 Cup of Quinoa
  • 1/2 Cup of Parmesan Cheese (if desired)
  • Spices (such as Pepper, Celery Salt or whatever you choose)

Directions:

  1. Chop and cut all vegetables up into small pieces.  I use a vegetable chopper which makes this process very easy and simple.
  2. Steam the vegetables so they are tender and soft to eat.
  3. Cook Morningstar burger crumbles
  4. Cook Quinoa according to package instructions
  5. Mix cooked veggies, quinoa and burger crumbles together, adding desired spices.
  6. Spread evenly in a baking dish (9x13 glass dish should work fine for this).
  7. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top (if desired, but not necessary).
  8. Bake for around 20 minutes at 325.
It would great served with homemade bread or even Ezekiel Bread, but can be eaten on its own.  It took me about 40 minutes to steam the veggies.  If you're making this recipe, I would get the vegetables steaming first and then work on the Quinoa and Burger Crumbles since they don't take as long.

Hope you enjoy this recipe and other than cutting and chopping the vegetables, it is very easy to make. We enjoy vegetarian dishes and this a good one.  Like I stated at the beginning, you can alter this recipe and it will probably taste as good as what I made.  We just picked the vegetables that we liked.

  1. I still haven't touched quinoa. lol And I should because it's so good for you and it's easy to use. I guess I'm just a creature of habit and too busy working on stuff I've already gotten comfortable with... But very cool dish and sounds tasty...

    1. I hear you because "new ingredients" scare me. Generally, I have no idea what to buy, where to find them, or how to work with them so I tend to avoid them even if the recipe sounds good. Fortunately when I was in the health food stores, a customer spent some time telling us all about Quinoa and a couple of my online friends had been urging me for months to try it. Glad I did because I love the stuff and a half cup of it cooked in water is delicious, easy, good for you.. LOL.. I sound like a commercial! Anyway, I'm a creature of habit too...
