Black Bean Quinoa Burgers
Just in time for the weekend! These Black Bean Quinoa Burgers are healthy, quick and delicious.
As with most of my “recipes” it is thrown together based on ingredients I have on hand.
They can be made a day ahead and stored in the fridge until ready to cook.
Please note these are cooked in a pan and not intended for the grill.
If you did want to grill them, you would probably need to cook on foil.
Make a batch at the beginning of the week to keep on hand as a snack!
In a food processor blend the beans, onion, garlic, pepper and all the spices.
Stir in the quinoa, either by hand separately in a bowl or a few quick pulses in the processor.
Form into patties.
Refrigerate at least 10 minutes before cooking.
I dusted with cornmeal before placing into container to prevent sticking.
You may want to dust with cornmeal, breadcrumbs or even dried amaranth before cooking.
Heat a splash of oil up in a pan and cook patties a few minutes on each side.
Makes 6-8 patties.
