Black Bean Burgers (Gluten Free with Vegan Option)

At least twice a week we stick to a vegetarian meal.  This is definitely a popular one in our home.  I always have a stock of cooked beans in our freezer so it is also a quick easy one to make.

  • 2 cups cooked black beans (separated)
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1/2 chopped onion
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 egg or 1 flax egg
  • 3-4 chopped mushrooms of choice (optional)
  • oil for frying 

Directions (makes 5-6 medium size patties)
  1. In a blender add 1 1/2 cups black beans, garlic, and onion.  Pulse until finely chopped.  Place in a bowl.
  2. Add the 1/2 cup reserved black beans and all remaining ingredients except the oil.
  3. Form into desired size patties.
  4. Heat oil in frying pan.
  5. Fry 3-5 minutes on each size or until browned and starting to crisp.  Do not over cook or they tend to get too soft and fall apart ;)
  6. I like to serve mine with a side of my nacho cheese dip.
