Black Bean Quinoa Burgers (Fed 5 for $3.38)

IMG_9572These are quite possibly the best black bean burgers you have ever had. No seriously, they are delicious. I used to make black bean burgers all the time, but this was before I discovered quinoa. Adding the quinoa to the burger makes the consistency so much better!

Boil 1 C. water. When it’s boiling, add 1 tsp. salt, 1/2 C. quinoa, 1 T. cilantro (I use freeze dried). Cover, and simmer for about 12-15 minutes. Once it’s finished, remove from heat and set aside.

In a pan, heat up 4 T. oil (I use cottonseed oil) for frying patties.

While the quinoa is cooking, in a food processor, add 3/4 of a 15 oz. can of drained black beans (you’ll add the rest back in later), 2 green onions, 1 egg, 1 tsp. roasted garlic salt, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1 tsp. cilantro, 1 tsp. sriracha sauce and mix until a paste forms. Transfer to a bowl and add in the already cooked quinoa, the rest of the can of beans, and 1/2 C. bread crumbs. Mix with hands until combined, and form patties, should make 5. Put patties in the pan and cook for about 5 minutes on each side, so it crisps nicely. Drain on paper towels and serve on a bun, as you would a “burger.” I topped mine with homemade pimento cheese, it was AMAZING!
