Beef and Quinoa Patties with Green Beans
From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. A very open-ended recipe (guide) so that you can adjust the seasonings and quantities as desired. If you have cooked quinoa from another use and have some leftover, it adds a great texture to this. If not, then use some fine cornmeal or oatmeal or other grains instead of the quinoa.
3/4 pound lean ground beef, or other ground meats as desired
Combine meat, salt, pepper, salsa or catsup or sauce with the cooked quinoa and shape into patties. Sprinkle a little bit more quinoa over patties. Heat heavy bottomed frypan or saute pan, adding 1-2 tablespoons oil or butter as needed. Cook 1-2 minutes, turn patties and cook 1-2 minutes more or to your desired doneness. In meantime, wash and remove the stem ends from the green beans. Put the water in a skillet with a lid and bring to a boil. Quckly add the green beans, cover, and cook 2 - 3 minutes. Do not overcook!!! Remove the green beans to a plate and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Serve with the patties with mayo or salsa, or both for dipping and dressing!
