My Black Bean and Quinoa Burgers…

My Black Bean and Quinoa Burgers

Ingredients:
  • 2 cups cooked black beans (or 1 can)
  • 1/2 cup vital wheat gluten
  • .25 cup bread crumbs (I make my own out of Ezekiel Bread)
  • 1/2 of a small red onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tbsp Ketchup
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp garam masala
  • .5 cup quinoa (cooked)
  • 1/4 cup water
Directions:

Pre heat over to 425*. If using canned black beans, drain and rinse. In food processor add onion and pulse till finely chopped. Put onions in mixing bowl, then add black beans to processor. Pulse a few times till beans are well smashed. Don’t do it too much because you want to have some whole beans in your burgers. Add to bowl with onion and mix with your hands. Then add garlic, bread crumbs, quinoa, ketchup, and spices. Make sure everything is combined well. Next add the vital wheat gluten and water. Mix well with hands and form into 8 hamburger patties. Cook burgers on cookie sheet with a little cooking spray. I cooked for 10 minutes on one side, flip, then bake for another 5 – 10 minutes. Serve with your favorite toppings and condiments. Makes 8 burgers.
