Black Bean Burger recipe is both delicious and satisfying. NOTHING like the store-bought burgers in frozen section. Will be a new favorite!

Ingredients

  • 1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • ½ cup fresh spinach, chopped

Instructions

  1. quinoa and water to a small sauce pan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the quinoa is tender and the water has been absorbed. About 15-20 mins.
  2. Mash the remaining black beans with the back of a fork.
  3. In a small saute skillet, add 1 tablespoon of the oil over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and saute for 2-3 minutes until translucent.
  4. Add the corn, chopped spinach, cumin and salt. Saute for another 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool for about 10 minutes.
  5. In a large bowl, combine the quinoa, panko, sauteed mixture. Add the hot sauce, egg and black beans. Mix until well combined. Form 4 black bean mixture patties.
  6. In a large saute pan or cast iron skillet, add the remaining olive oil over medium heat. Add the black bean patties to the oil and cook until heated through for about 2-3 minutes per side.
     

Notes

I didn’t have garlic powder on hand so I just used 3 fresh crushed garlic cloves, which worked just fine.
