I was sitting at the apartment after a long, HOT day at work, (101 degrees!! Ouch!!) and I was a little too lazy to cook a full meal. I looked at what I had in my fridge and thought about making something simple that wasn’t too time-consuming.

I took the ground chicken and cilantro out of the fridge and stared at it until my stomach told me I was in the mood for a burger or patty of some sort. I looked in my pantry for other items and saw that I had a packet of shwarma spice mix and white pepper powder.

Taking all those ingredients and adding a few extra of my own, I made an easy, tasty patty that was a great compliment to a simple salad.

1 cup Quinoa (cooked)

Make small “meatball” sized balls and then flatten to make a patty.

Heat up a skillet with the remaining oil. Cook each patty until brown. Serve hot!

Great to have in a burger or by itself with a salad (like I did) or potato salad!
