Quinoa Burger

Ingredients:
2 1/2 Cups Cooked Quinoa
1/2 Jar Calabrian Pepper & Sweet Tomato Fennel Spread 
4 Large Eggs, beaten
1/2 Tsp Salt
1/3 Cup Chopped Fresh Chives 
1 Yellow Onion
1/3 Cup Grated Parmesan 
3 Cloves Garlic, finely chopped
1 Cup Bread Crumbs
1 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Bunch of Fresh Spinach

Directions: 

Combine the quinoa, eggs, and salt in a medium bowl. Stir in the chives, onion, cheese, and garlic. Add the bread crumbs, stir, and let sit for a few minutes so the crumbs can absorb some of the moisture.  Form the patties to the size you prefer. 

Heat the oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium-low heat, add the patties, cover, and cook for 7 to 10 minutes, until the bottoms are deeply browned. Carefully flip the patties with a spatula and cook the second sides for 7 minutes, or until golden.  Top each burger with a dollop of  Bellisari's Calabrian & Sweet Tomato Fennel Spread and fresh spinach.
