Black Bean Burgers!

Don’t need to CHOMP an animal to get my protein! These burgers have beans AND quinoa, two plant based protein power houses!   I’m trying to ditch all the bread I eat; these were great  topped with the cheese from this recipe and wrapped in lettuces!

Black Bean 1 SV

Here’s what you’ll need:

1 15.2 oz can of black beans drained and rinsed

1 green bell peper

Half a red onion

2 cloves garlic

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon cumin

1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

3/4 cup cooked quinoa

1 handful of chopped cilantro

A few dashed of chili powder (optional)

Bread crumbs with some garlic powder for coating

Burger fixins (tomatoes, avocado, lettuces, onions…you know what to do)

Here’s what you need to do:

Add all ingredients minus the quinoa and fixins into a food processor and pulse until combined leave a little chunky if possible. Then add quinoa and either mix in with a wooden spoon or pulse a couple times to combine it.

Scoop out small handfuls (it will probably be pretty mushy) and drop into a bowl of breadcrumbs to fully coat it.

Drop onto hot (low to medium) oiled pan and reshape with the back of spatula.

Let it get a little crunchy on both sides then…
