How to make Black Bean Quinoa Burgers

To make these burgers, start by slightly mashing your drained and rinsed black beans in a medium-size bowl. Then, add your remaining ingredients and combine well. Shape into patties and pan fry for 3-5 minutes on each side. I made 5 good size burgers by measuring them with a half cup. You can make these as big or small as you want.

When cooking, cook until lightly golden on each side. Serve and enjoy!

If you want to try to grill them I would recommend freezing them first. You will also need to cook them longer if cooking from frozen. If you do attempt it be sure to let me know in the comments below!
