  • 1 15 oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/4 cup quinoa
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup green bell pepper diced
  • 1/4 cup roasted red bell peppers diced (may use raw peppers)
  • 1/2 jalapeno pepper minced
  • 1 large clove garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons onion minced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 good dash red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce or to taste
  • 1 large egg For vegan burgers, substitute 1/2 cup oatmeal, cooked rice or mashed potatoes


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie or baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Bring the quinoa and water to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer until the quinoa is tender and the water has been absorbed, about 10-15 minutes.
  • Roughly mash the black beans with a fork leaving some whole black beans. You should have a paste-like mixture now.
  • Add the cooked quinoa (3/4 cup), bread crumbs, peppers, onion, garlic, cumin, salt, hot pepper sauce, and egg into the black beans. Mix well, using your hands.
  • Form 5 patties and place on parchment lined baking pan.
  • Bake for approximately 20 minutes.
  • Enjoy with your favorite burger condiments!
