THE RECIPE

Southwest Quinoa Sliders with Avocado Cream Sauce

Little sliders pack a big flavor punch

Feeling a bit “overextended” after a week of Thanksgiving gluttony? Don’t want to resort to eating rabbit food to get back into the swing of things? Well then, these delicious, healthful, and vegetarian quinoa sliders are just the thing you need. Proving that veggie burgers don’t have to be boring (or come out of the freezer), fluffy and nutritious quinoa is mixed with black beans, corn, and a blend of Southwestern spices for a full-flavored mini veggie burger that will leave you feeling good and satisfied. Can’t handle the heat? The avocado cream sauce (which uses greek yogurt instead of sour cream) will help cool your palate long enough to get in another bite.
