While visiting my parents in Santa Fe this week, I am reminded of my recent girls’ trip here during which we enjoyed a delicious quinoa nut burger at an interesting little eclectic place called Cowgirls.  The people-watching was almost as good as the nut burger, and we thoroughly enjoyed both.  This is my attempt at the quinoa nut burger, and I have to say it is so yummy.  I hope you enjoy!
