Quinoa & black bean burgers

Vegan, gluten-free, wheat-free, egg-free, easy

Recently, i've been craving warm & hearty foods. After Christmas i wanted to get back to cooking healthy dishes to start the new year.
 I wanted to re-create the Homemade Burger Co. Veg Mex burger as i am a huge fan of that burger. Yum!!!
I have created a delicious Mexican style, protein packed quinoa & black bean burger which is full of nutrients & goodness, topped off with my delicious, homemade guacamole.
Guacamole is my favourite dip/super food! I eat it all the time :)
Quinoa known as a super grain due to its amazing amount of protein and other minerals & nutrients like iron, magnesium and fibre etc...

These burgers are healthy, 100% vegan, gluten-free and easy to make, paired with guacamole, salsa and salad, are extremely tasty and filling.
Perfect for summer BBQ's or to enjoy on a cool, winters night! 

Makes- Approximately 12 burgers

Ingredients for the burger
-2 cups of cooked quinoa 
-1 cup of black beans
-1/2 cup of cannellini beans
-2 small garlic clove
-1/2 white onion
-1/4 teaspoon of salt
-Pinch of ground cumin
-Pinch of cayenne pepper
-1/4 teaspoon of chilli flakes
-1/3 cup of gluten-free bread crumbs 
-3 tablespoons of light olive oil
-Guacamole (Recipe here)
-Red onion
-Burger buns (Gluten-free)

Step 1- Wash & drain the quinoa and place into a large saucepan with a good amount of water.
Bring to the boil and then simmer for around 20 minutes, until the quinoa is clear and cooked then drain fully.
Step 2- Place all ingredients into a food processor and whizz up. 
Leave a little chunky for texture.
Step 3- Place the burger mixture into a bowl and pop into the fridge for 25 minutes.

Step 4- Form the mixture into burgers and place onto baking paper.
Pop the burgers back into the fridge for 10 more minutes.
Step 5- Coat a large wok/ pan with a drizzle of light oil and heat on low.

Step 6- Cook the burgers 5-8 minutes on each side until brown & crispy.
Place the cooked burgers onto kitchen paper to remove any excess oil (optional)

Make your burger by adding a slice of lettuce onto a bun, along with tomatoes, red onion, guacamole, salsa and sesame seeds...

Serving option: Serve whilst hot with homemade chips and salad.

You can freeze the burgers in a sealed container for later use, but defrost fully before cooking.
