Quinoa and Lentil Burgers

This is my favourite meal and I eat it several times a week during the summer. These delicious quinoa and lentil burgers can be stored for 3-4 days and are quick to make for lunch or dinner. They are delicious served on my Avocado & Artichoke Salad with 3 tsp of hummus and a handful of bean sprouts.
