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

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

  • Roughly mash black beans with a fork, leaving some whole black beans, to form a paste-like mixture. Mix quinoa, bread crumbs, bell pepper, egg, onion, garlic, cumin, salt, and hot pepper sauce into black beans using your hands. Form black bean mixture into 5 patties.

  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet.

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