Who says burgers need to be all beef? These flavorful patties pack a protein punch by combining healthy black beans with quinoa. Plus, the patties can be frozen and stored for up to six months!

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Cook quinoa according to package directions, set aside to cool.
  2. In a blender or food processor, blend half of the black beans and oats until smooth. Add up to two tablespoons of water if mixture is crumbly.
  3. In a large bowl, combine pureed mixture with remaining beans, quinoa, celery, corn, egg, ketchup, and spices and mix well. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
  4. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Form chilled bean mixture into 6 patties and arrange on a well-greased baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes, turning once after 10 minutes.
  6. Serve warm on hamburger buns with tomatoes, lettuce, and cheese if desired.
