Quinoa Burger

I have recently discovered an online grocery store called Place of Origin. It is a big regional food marketplace which hosts a few hundreds of unique local food brands. On PlaceofOrigin.in, you can find Indian sweets, dry fruits, chocolates, cakes, biscuits, pickles, masalas, grains, staples and health foods from across India.

Lately I have tried quinoa salads in a few restaurants so I decided to give it a try and prepare quinoa at home. I chose the Whole Grain Quinoa from Organic Farmers Co. I already knew its variation as a salad so I came up with an idea of a quinoa burger. Itโ€™s super healthy, easy and light. Just try it out and you’ll see ๐Ÿ™‚
