Quinoa and Spinach Burgers


1/2 bunch fresh organic spinach
1 lb ground meat (to make VEGAN: can omit and use more spinach and more quinoa to sub for vegetarian burgers...or try black beans)
1/2 onion, chopped small
2 cloves garlic, minced fine
2 tsp cumin
pinch cayenne
salt and black pepper to taste
1 flax egg ( 1 Tbsp flax, 3 Tbsp water)
1 cup cooked quinoa

Avocado/Guacamole Spread
3 Avocadoes
Finely minced clove of garlic (or garlic powder)
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
2 Tbsp fresh cilantro
juice of one lime

Also need:


1. Shred spinach in food processor or chop fine.. Mix all ingredients in large bowl, and make into patties (makes about 5)
2. These do not tend to stay together well. You can attempt cooking on the stove, but I recommend broiling in oven 5-8 minutes per side, to desired doneness (but be sure it is cooked well, raw meat can be harmful!)
3. Serve on an eat clean bun with guacamole and freshly sliced tomatoe.
