Black Bean, Quinoa & Cheddar Burgers


Ingredients
  • 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
Instructions
  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.
