A delicious, healthy, and protein-packed quinoa burger with a fresh and flavorful mango relish kissed with curry and a hint of lime.

Make the relish: In a bowl, combine the mango, cilantro, lime juice, and curry powder. Set aside until needed.

Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat and cook the quinoa burgers for 5 minutes, then flip and cook for an additional 4 to 5 minutes until golden. Serve each burger on a bed of 1 cup of the greens and top with mango relish.
