איבער די יאָרן איך האָבן דעוועלאָפּעד וועגן אַ טוץ וועגאַן בערגער רעסאַפּיז – טייל ווייַל איך ליבע בורגערס און טייל ווייַל עס זענען נישט פילע צוגעגרייט וועגאַן בורגערס אַז איך ווי גענוג צו קויפן. צו מיר, רובֿ פון זיי טאָן ניט האָבן אַ פּלאַץ פון טאַם און די געוועב בלעטער אַ פּלאַץ צו ווערן געבעטן. And finding a delicious gluten-free vegan burger is even tougher. They tend to me made from soy and/or seeds. I don’t know about you but when I want a burger, I really don’t want a mold of seeds.

But now I found a prepared vegan burger that is also gluten-free that I love – QRUNCH Quinoa Burgers. QRUNCH Quinoa Burgers are made with quinoa, פאָלק, coconut oil and other organic ingredients such as broccoli, שפּינאַט, קעראַץ, and lentils. They have a mild nutty flavor and lots of crunchy texture. QRUNCH Burgers are vegan, אָרגאַניק, גלוטען-פֿרייַ און ניט-גמאָ. They are also free of corn, בין, nuts and MSG. Healthy and delicious.

QRUNCH Burgers were developed by Jim Adams, formerly Chipotle’s marketing director, and Chef Brad Holley who both have gluten-intolerant relatives. They banded together to create a burger that would not only be free of common allergens but taste great too. אין 2010 they launched QRUNCH Foods (קווינאָאַ + crunch = QRUNCH). QRUNCH Burgers are available at stores like Wegmans, Whole Foods, Target and Kroger as well as natural foods markets across the country.

QRUNCH Burgers are available in four flavors: אָריגינעל, Spicy Italian, Sweet Curry with Lentils and Green Chile with Pinto Beans. The burgers are already cooked and simply need to be reheated. They can be popped in the toaster, sautéed in a skillet, heated through in an oven or even fired up on the grill.

Since the flavor of the burgers is mild, especially with the Original burgers, they work well with both sweet and savory recipes. The Spicy Italian QRUNCH burgers (מיין באַליבט) have red pepper flakes and fennel to give it heat and would make a excellent base for a vegan parmesan dish. We had these with some melted vegan mozzarella, tomatoes and kale on toasted bread.

The Sweet Curry burgers have lentils and Indian seasoning for an earthier, exotic taste. The Green Chile burgers have pinto beans, cumin and green chiles for a warm Mexican flavor. These are the ones I used to develop a special recipe for QRUNCH Foods.

Instead of making a burger, I decided to make a savory entree that was a little elegant. So I put the burger on top of some yellow rice that I molded into a pretty tower. I had some jalapeno jelly and didn’t know what to do with it. When I got the QRUNCH Green Chile Burgers, I thought it would be the perfect topping for them. I combined the jalapeno jelly with some mayo, heated it in a small saucepan and used it as a sauce that got drizzled over the burger and the rice. Then I served it with a side of roasted vegetables. Any veggies will do – I chose broccoli, cauliflower and radishes and seasoned them with some Spanish spices.

It was a delicious meal, very flavorful with lots of different textures. The crunch of the QRUNCH burgers held up well to the sauce.

I have a lot of fun coming up with new vegan, gluten-free burger recipes but I sure wouldn’t mind having my freezer filled with lots of QRUNCH Quinoa Burgers too. The possibilities of how to use them are endless. טשעק אויס זייער וועב פּלאַץ און “ווי” זיי אויף זייער פאַסעבאָאָק בלאַט. Then go buy a bunch of boxes of QRUNCH burgers and enjoy!
