Last Friday I attempted to make bean burgers but did not have all the ingredients to do so (mainly a lack of bread crumbs) but didn’t realize it until I had already started putting things together. I was also going to make a recipe using quinoa but in the end decided to mix the two. Joshua was helping in the kitchen and this is what we came up with:
Quinoa and Bean Burgers
1 can kidney beans
1 can white kidney beans (or navy beans)
2 cups cooked quinoa
1/2 medium onion, diced
4 oz shredded cheese
1/3 cup flour (or enough to help hold the mixture together)
Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl and set aside.
Pour Â about 1/4 inch of oil into a pan and heat to 350. (I used my new bff, my electricÂ skillet)
Form into patties, about 3″ wide and 1/2″ thick and place in hot oil until brown on each side.
Top with extra shredded cheese.
We served them on buns topped with cheese, tomatoes, mayo, and jalapeno chips, but they would be great served without the bun.
This recipe made 24(ish) burgers, enough for three meals for our little family, I am sure it can be halved.
