Quinoa Black Bean Burgers

Quinao Black Bean Burger

Spring is in the air!  Many parts of Canada are still buried under a lot of snow, but it is April and Easter is behind us, so I can’t help thinking of days spent outside and the deliciousness of BBQ’d burgers.

As you know, Jamie and I live in an apartment so we don’t have the luxury of firing up a BBQ whenever the mood strikes us, but that has never stopped us from using our indoor cast iron grill to cook up a burger or two.  The only downside of this is the amount of smoke that is created by using the indoor grill.

This weekend I wanted to try a vegetarian burger, so see if we could get the same burger satisfaction using black beans and quinoa.  My sister, Cherie, shared this recipe with me.  She swears by it, so I thought that we could give it a try.

Turkey Mushroom Sausage Patties

Turkey Mushroom Sausage

#GrillOn

Earlier this year I was approached by Turkey Farmers of Canada and Mushrooms Canada to create two grilling recipes to be published this summer in e-cookbooks available through Facebook. The recipes would be original and combine mushrooms and turkey. I was honoured! WOW, I never would have imagined that my small blog would have been recognized in a national capacity. Once I got over the initial shock, I started to doubt myself. Could I really create two original recipes using turkey and mushrooms? I don’t even have a BBQ!  Would my creations measure up to what they are looking for? Because they were going to compensate me, I wanted to deliver a quality product, and I was worried that I would disappoint. But, Jamie told me to go for it!  Jump in with both feet and accept the offer. So, I slept on it and decided to go for it 🙂

Turkey Burger with Grilled Pineapple

I know that fall is here, but I couldn’t resist one more, summer–time recipe to share with you before I go completely into fall mode with comfort food consisting of squash and soup recipes.

We have created burgers on here before, but this time we thought we would change it up a bit and share with you our turkey burger recipe. The great thing about burgers is you can really just throw a bunch of spices in a bowl with some ground meat and you instantly have the makings of a pretty good burger.

Ham-Burr-ger Helper

The role of today’s guest food blogger is played by Connie’s husband, Jamie.

Shortly after Connie launched A Ruby Reduction, I briefly entertained the thought of creating a companion blog focused entirely on the hamburger.

It seemed like a splendid idea at first … until I began to realize that in order to maintain such a site, I’d have to eat an (almost) ungodly number of burgers (and buns) on a regular basis.

Hey, I love hamburgers, but a man’s got his limits.
