Black Bean, Quinoa & Cheddar Burgers

  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1 ½ cups drained and rinsed black beans (1 can)
  • 1 egg or flax egg (1 tablespoon ground flax seeds + 3 tablespoons warm water)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 3 ounces cheddar cheese or Daiya, shredded
  • 1 chopped onion
  • ¼ cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 cup organic cornmeal
  • Coconut oil, for cooking
  1. If using flax egg, combine ground flax seeds with warm water and set aside. (Skip this step if using an egg.)
  2. Place quinoa in a food processor along with ½ of the beans. Pulse until a paste forms. Add (flax) egg, cumin, paprika and sea salt and process for one minute. Transfer to a bowl. Stir in remaining beans, cheese, onion and cilantro.
  3. Place cornmeal in a shallow dish.
  4. Form quinoa mixture into patties and carefully coat with cornmeal. Transfer to a parchment lined plate and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  5. Heat oil to medium in a heavy skillet. Cook for 7 to 9 minutes per side, until firm and crispy.
