Do you like burgers?
What about some veggie burgers for a change?
I made these black eyed bean and quinoa patties and I absolutely loved them!
The down side is, they might be a bit dry, but not to worry, I served them with delicious dill, garlic and cucumber sauce.
It’s raita like, yogurt based sauce with a touch of mayonnaise. It goes well with almost everything so take a note of it!
