Directions
  1. Preheat gas grill for medium-high heat. Meanwhile, place mushrooms and onion in food processor bowl; pulse until very finely chopped. Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushroom mixture, 1/8 teaspoon salt and pepper; cook 5 to 7 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; cool slightly.
  2. Combine cooked quinoa, mushroom mixture, oats, cheese, oregano, thyme, eggs, mustard and 1/4 teaspoon salt in large bowl. Allow mixture to sit for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, place rolls on warming rack or over indirect heat on grill. Heat 10 minutes or to desired color and crispness (165°F). Remove from heat; set aside. Stir together yogurt, lemon juice, garlic and remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt in small bowl; set aside.
  3. Firmly press and shape quinoa mixture into 8 patties, about 2-1/2 inches in diameter and about 1-inch thick. Spray 18x12-inch piece of heavy foil with grilling spray; place on grill grate. Add patties; grill 5 to 7 minutes on each side or until set and cooked through (160°F).
