Aroma® GRILLET® (also on AMAZON)



  • 1½ cups cooked quinoa
  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cayenne powder
  • 1 tsp roasted garlic powder
  • ¾ cup Italian breadcrumbs
  • ¾ cup panko breadcrumbs
  • ¾ cup shredded pepper jack cheese
  • 3 eggs


  • hamburger buns (we recommend pretzel buns or brioche)
  • chipotle mayo (½ cup mayonnaise, ½ cup sour cream, juice from 1 lime, 1 tbsp adobo sauce)
  • tomato
  • red onion
  • lettuce


  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F.
  2. Cut the cauliflower into florets and transfer to a baking sheet. Drizzle the cauliflower with olive oil and sprinkle with the seasoning. Bake for 20-30 minutes until browned, then remove and stir. Let florets cool, then pulse in your blender or food processor until the texture resembles rice. Do not over blend into a puree.
  3. Mix together the cauliflower, quinoa, breadcrumbs, cheese, and eggs. Form the mixture into 10 patties, adding a little more breadcrumbs if the mixture seems too wet.
  4. Preheat the Grillet™ to 400„€°. Cook 4 patties at a time, for about 5 minutes per side until golden brown. Assemble the burgers with some of the Chipotle mayo and other toppings.
