Quinoa (pronounced keen-wah) is not a grain; it is actually a seed and related to the spinach family. Quinoa contains all 9 essential amino acids that are required by the body as building blocks for muscles. It is also a good source of magnesium and copper that act as antioxidants in your body to get rid of dangerous cancer and disease-causing substances.
Add turkey, egg white, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and red pepper flakes to the quinoa and use fingers to combine. Form into four patties. Drizzle each patty with a little olive oil and coat with breadcrumbs on each side. Refrigerate while you heat up the grill or broiler. Just before cooking, drizzle each side of the burger with a little more olive oil - this will help the breadcrumbs really crisp up. (If grilling, place a sheet of aluminum foil on top of the grill rack.) Cook turkey burgers for about 5 minutes per side, until well done.
Serve whole grain buns or enjoy open-faced topped with lettuce, tomato and onion and/or your favorite burger fixings.
