Ingredients:
1/2 cup of quinoa
1 cup veggie broth
1 small onion, diced
1 15oz. can of chickpeas
1 tablespoons chopped parsley
2 eggs
1/2 cup panko crumbs
1/2 t salt
1/4 t black pepper
1/4 t cumin
1/4 t cayenne pepper

Directions:
Place quinoa and veggie broth in a pot, bring to a boil then simmer until liquid is absorbed. Meanwhile, saute onions until translucent. Remove from heat and combine with cooked quinoa. Add in chickpeas and mash with a fork. Season with spices then add in eggs, panko crumbs and parsley. Combine well. Shape into patties. Heat up a frying pan with oil and cook until both sides are lightly browned. Serve on bun with mayo, tomato slices, avocado and lettuce. Would also taste great with bbq mayo or tahini sauce.
