Rainbow Quinoa Burger With Beetroot Slaw

This recipe looks amazing and tastes amazing too. A great way to feed your family the full spectrum of the gut-friendly rainbow veggies in one meal! The burger is vegan and full of protein from the quinoa and calcium from the chia seeds.

The beetroot slaw is a pretty awesome garnish for all sorts of things and stores in the fridge for over a week. It is vegetarian and I have given an easy dairy-free vegan alternative.
