Alternative burgers like lentils, soy or quinua are a great way to vary grain preparations. I have to confess that this hamburger itself was not made by me. I have found a great supplier of these pre made burgers and it certainly makes a great option on hectic days. If you would like the supplier here in Bogotá let me know, I woud be glad to share it. I also know they ship nationally in Colombia.
