Here is a recipe from my new cookbook Purely Delicious. Eating these burgers will automatically make you feel healthier! These yummy vegetarian style burgers are rich in super food antioxidants and protein to aid muscle repair and help energise your body. They are delicious hot or cold and make the perfect portable meal to pack into any lunch box or stuff into lettuce wrappers and enjoy with smashed avocado and tomato salsa. I make mine using wholegrain steamed brown rice, which holds them together really well – you can also use cooked quinoa, however they are slightly more delicate.
WHAT’S GREAT ABOUT IT:
Brown rice is great to use if you have digestive issues. It’s a lovely, mild in flavour and gluten free. It’s also a source of B vitamins that are needed for energy metabolism. If you’re using quinoa, it is gluten free and has a low GI of 53. Quinoa is a complete protein which means that it contains all the essential amino acids that the body needs for repair. It’s also a good source of lysine, an amino acid important for tissue growth and repair, which makes it a perfect meal after a hard workout. For added protein I’ve added grated tempeh which is made from fermented soy beans.
