Quinoa and Pistachio Burgers | Polpette di Quinoa e Pistacchi

Quinoa and Pistachio Burgers:

I create this recipe by accident when I had 6 friends coming over for dinner. I wanted to prepare a quinoa salad with a vegan pesto made with pistachio nuts and basil leaves, but the quinoa was extremely sticky so I thought to turn it into burger patties. I love quinoa especially because it is a very good source of plant-based protein, vitamin B and magnesium. This super grain is also free from gluten, therefore it’s perfect if you have a sensibility to gluten or if you just want to avoid it.
