Meat-Free Monday: Round Two Quinoa and Black Bean Burgers

Katherine made these yummy burgers from leftover quinoa,  and I can’t wait until we have them again. 

Ingredients: 

  • Canned black beans, rinsed
  • Slightly less quinoa than beans (3/4th the amount, roughly)
  • Teriyaki, for consistency and flavor.

Smoosh the beans and quinoa together thoroughly, adding teriyaki as needed.

Form into BIG patties and cook in a pan coated lightly in olive oil. Cook about 10 minutes on medium heat, flipping about halfway through.

These have a moist, soft consistency, a subtle quinoa flavor, and lot of heft. As big and hungry as I am, I could never eat more than one at a meal.

They taste great with flavorful sauces, sweet and spicy pickles, crisp lettuce and onion, ore whatever you like on your burger.
