Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 cup canned black-eyed peas, rinsed and drained
  • 1 tablespoon shallots, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup carrots, finely shredded
  • 1/4 cup gluten free panko crumbs or gluten free bread crumbs
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • Pink Himalayan sea salt
  • 1/2 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1 organic egg
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, like this one
  • GARNISH: Avocado, tomatoes, pickles and spinach

Instructions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, mash the black eyed peas with a potato masher, making sure to leave a few chunks. Add the shallots, shredded carrots, panko crumbs, garlic, 1/2 teaspoon salt and mix well. Add the cooked quinoa and the egg and combine.
  2. Using clean hands, form the mixture into six individual patties and place on a large plate.
  3. Heat a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Add the oil and heat until shimmering. Reduce the heat to medium, place the patties in the pan, and cook until golden brown, about 5-minutes. Carefully flip and brown the other sides, about 5 minutes more.
  4. Assemble the burgers on buns on a platter. Top with your favorite toppings and serve.

Notes

To shred the carrots, place 1/2 cup chopped carrots in a mini food processor and pulse until shredded.
