So since I’m not eating Beef, Chicken or Pork going to Summer BBQs kinda suck. So in I’m going to share my favorite Vegetarian Burger recipe. So just so you know I’m not a gourmet chef or anything.
-1 can of black beans (drained and rinsed)
-1/4 cup of quinoa
-1/2 cup of water
-1/2 cup of bread crumbs (I used ritz crackers for a slightly buttery taste)
-1/4 cup of minced sweet peppers
-2 TB of minced onions
– 1 large clove of garlic minced
-1 1/1 tsp of ground cumin
– 1/2 tsp of salt
-1 tsp of hot sauce (your preference)
– 1 egg
-3 TB of olive oil
Crumble Crackers (or don’t if you use breadcrumbs)
Combine Water and Quinoa in sauce pan bring to boil and simmer for 15 to 20 mins until water is absorbed and Quinoa is tender
Smash Black beans in bowl, it’s a good idea to leave a couple of whole beans.
Mix everything except the Olive Oil. I mixed with my hands as it’s the easy and fastest way to combine everything together.
I was able to make around 4 patties.
Heat a skillet with the Olive oil. Cook each patty for about 2 to 3 mins or until heated through. They should be a nice golden brown color.
I used Pretzel Buns and topped mine with cheddar cheese, Spinach, Avocado Lime Mayo and honey mustard, but you can top it with whatever you like.
Hope you enjoy these as much as I do!
