Black Bean and Quinoa Burgers

Doing dishes has never been my favorite activity. You’ll notice that most of my recipes use as few bowls, pans, and utensils as possible. You’ll also notice that I make a lot of hand held foods – wraps sandwiches, tacos, and in this case, burgers.

With these foods, I avoid the need for utensils, and I can continue the rotation of the one fork that is either in my mouth, in my sink, or in my drying rack. I am truly a single & independent millennial (sorry, Mom).

The toughest part about crafting fantastic foods without eggs is the part where ingredients stick together. Flax eggs to the rescue. There’s something magical about those little seeds – it’s a scientific fact that 64% fewer people would eat a vegan diet if flax eggs did not exist (try to prove me wrong).

Luckily these burgers have enough flavor and stick-together-power for you to forget about beef completely!

  1. Prepare flax egg in a small bowl and set aside for a few minutes.
  2. Combine quinoa, black beans, and all of the spices in a large bowl. Add flax egg and mix well.
  3. Form each patty by flattening about 1/2 cup of the mixture into a round disk.
