3. Portion into 8-ounce patties, then press through a burger press with a piece of wax paper underneath and on top of each patty. Place burgers on plastic serving platter and refrigerate overnight. These keeps the burgers from falling apart on the grill. (Patties must never get above 40 F or they will fall apart.)

There is something to be said with stocking your pantry and fridge with items that are versatile and healthy.   I had some leftover chopped veggies and garbanzo beans from tortellini salad night, and a chop salad in the fridge, and someone had given me some tofurkey ‘sausage’ that I wanted to try,

1 package Dole chopped salad

1 small bottle yogurt garlic dressing

2 pouches Seeds of Change red quinoa and brown rice

I sliced and browned the tofurkey in a skillet.  I did not heat up the quinoa, as it is fully cooked already.

I just tossed everything in a bowl with some garbanzo beans and put it in the fridge until everyone was ready to eat.

I put out the leftover sliced black olives and red peppers for those who like them!

I was a little concerned that it was just too easy, but it was delicious.  I can just imagine how amazing it could be on a day when I’m in the mood to make up fresh quinoa instead of going with the convenience stuff.
