Meatless Monday: Quinoa Burgers and Corn Casserole

Reducing meat consumption, especially beef, is great for our brains, our hearts, and our earth

Corn Casserole 

2 cups any dry uncooked pasta

1 can creamed corn                                                            017

1 can whole kernel corn (include juice)

About ¾ pound mozzarella cheese (shredded)

1/3 cup water

Place the ingredients in a large casserole dish in the following order: Pasta, whole kernel corn, water, about ½ of the cheese, next the cream corn , and the remainder of the cheese.  Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.  Allow to sit 10-15 minutes before serving. Children and corn lovers think this easy recipe is terrific.

Quinoa Burgers

1 Cup left over cooked quinoa, barley, bulgur or brown rice(my favorite is quinoa and kale/spinach from this website).  Left over grain salads work great!

¼ cup grated carrot

1/3 cup oatmeal

1 egg and one egg white beaten together

chopped onion to taste (I put the onion in the cooking of the quinoa, barley or rice)

½ tsp salt and pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients together and drop ¼ cup of the mixture into a hot skillet to saute in olive or coconut oil or place in oiled muffin cups and cook 20 min. at 350 degrees.  Place these in the oven the last 20 minutes of baking the corn casserole if you choose the oven method.
