I know, I know……… RABBIT FOOD! Before Easter! GASP! Yes folks, bust out all those leftover carrots and let’s make some burgers! Carrot tahini burgers. Carrot tahini Quinoa burgers. Carrot tahini quinoa burgers with tzatziki! Oh yes……

What will you do this Easter? Maybe you will do like me and EAT WAY WAY TOO MUCH FREAKIN CHOCOLATE? Except from that; Lots of roadtrips with the familhy, dinner cooking, park going, egg hunting, and breakfast making. Buuuuuuuut today we are going to make som AMAZINGLY GOOD burgers! 

 

 

Well, these burgers guys, these burgers. I know what you’re thinking. That these are secretly HASHBROWN BURGERS! Nope, but that would be pretty fantastic wouldn’t it? Burgers with a hashbrown patty? I may be on to something here………

Alas, they are shredded rainbow carrot. Mixed with the nutty goodness of tahini and the healthy goodness of quinoa. Topped with freshly made tzatziki and a nutty red cabbage slaw.

Unique and tasty homemade veggie burgers! Carrot tahini quinoa burgers with tzatziki are topped with freshly made tzatziki and a nutty cabbage slaw.
