There’s an ongoing debate about whether or not oats are gluten free. Technically they should be, but they might contain gluten because of cross-contamination in processing, transporting and storage. If you want to make sure, try Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Rolled Oats.
Chickpea Quinoa Burgers
1 small sweet potato
1/4 C dry quinoa
1/4 C dry oats
15-oz can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
2 T parsley
1 t cayenne pepper
1 t cumin
1/2 t salt
1/2 t pepper
2 T gluten free flour
2 T olive oil
Peel, dice, and steam the sweet potato until soft. Cook the quinoa and oats in separate pots.
In a food processor, combine garbanzo beans, sweet potato, parsley, cayenne pepper, cumin, salt and pepper, flour, and one tablespoon oil.
In a separate bowl, mix the bean mixture with the quinoa and oats. Using hands, form into six patties.
Heat the remaining tablespoon of oil in a pan on medium heat. Brown both sides of each burger.
Serve on salad greens, dressed with a drizzle of olive oil, lemon, salt & pepper.
