These vegetarian burgers are delicious! Your carnivorous friends will be impressed. My favorite way to serve is on a whole-wheat bun with garlic-lemon mayonnaise, fresh raw spinach, sliced tomato, and caramelized onions!

Instructions Checklist
  • Bring the quinoa and water to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the quinoa is tender and the water has been absorbed, about 15 to 20 minutes.

  • Roughly mash the black beans with a fork leaving some whole black beans in a paste-like mixture.

  • Mix the quinoa, bread crumbs, bell pepper, onion, garlic, cumin, salt, hot pepper sauce, and egg into the black beans using your hands.

  • Form the black bean mixture into 5 patties.

  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet.

  • Cook the patties in the hot oil until heated through, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
