Preheat the oven to 350.

Remove the stem from the mushrooms and pulse in the food processor until finely chopped. Add the sun-dried tomatoes and continue to pulse in the food processor.

Grate zucchini and then place grated pieces between two paper towels to remove excess moisture.

Transfer to a large bowl and mix in quinoa and season with salt, peppar, smoked paprika and any spice you like.

Form the mixture into patties. Cook patties in skillet until brown, 4 minutes each side.Medium temperature.

Build burgers on white kale or Roman Sallad leaves, carrots, humus, salsa, sprouts and avocado.
