Angus beef quinoa cheeseburger

Earlier in the week I shared a salmon wrap post and my good blogger friend John from the UK left a concerned comment about my recent quinoa love. I replied that I needed to break this vicious cycle that I’m in. You’d think I could do it cold turkey, but no, tonight I used quinoa again in an Angus beef quinoa cheeseburger.

    1. I wish I had Lorraine. I just buy the small packets from Coles. I should explore a bigger bag. I remember as a kid buying very large bags of rice and Mum had this huge china pot to hold the rice.

  1. The combination of fried bread and cheese makes up for quinoa which btw looks like wholegrain mustard which is perfectly acceptable on a burger. I’ve never tried a fried bread cheeseburger….

    Also i think i just tried to comment using facebook which i dont use so i am reposting my comment here all this social media stuff is beyond me….

    1. I agree, and thought that at the time about the wholegrain mustard and as you say making it more acceptable. Cooking in the fat of animals also give the quinoa a healthy meaty flavour.
      The Facebook commenting this is new. I’m experimenting.
