After a long day of work, we arrive home and we do not feel like cooking and we do not want to eat something too heavy. This is a good idea for simple light dinner to go to bed with a delicious mouthfeel but nothing caloric.

In the case that we have to cook the quinoa, start with it, preparing it in the usual way. Rinse thoroughly and cook in plenty of boiling water for about 10-12 minutes. Rinse and drain very well.
Remove the pulp from the avocado and chop into a bowl. Add the lemon and lime zest and juice, and crush rudely with a fork. Add the chopped red onion, green pepper or chilli pepper without the seeds too chopped and chives or cilantro. Season with granulated garlic, pepper and salt.
Add the quinoa and mix very well until you have a homogeneous mass. It will be sticky, but we can shape it with wet hands. Add a bit of bread crumbs or cornstarch if necessary. Arrange a deep dish with panko, form mini hamburgers and coat them on both sides, pressing gently.
Heat a nonstick skillet or pan with a little oil and cook the mini burgers already mounted on medium heat, until they are well browned on both sides. Serve with mini rolls, tomato, green leaves and sauce to taste.
