Chipotle & Quinoa Vegan Burger

You’ll drive right past the drive-thru once you’ve tried this healthy vegan alternative to ordinary burgers. Made from a blend of cooked quinoa and black beans, it’s hearty enough to satisfy even the hungriest fast-food seekers, with a splash of chipotle sauce for a gourmet touch and a spicy twist. Don’t like the heat? Turn it down with a dollop of guacamole, which pairs perfectly with the subtle, south-of-the-border flavor.
