What You Need
  • 1 cup dry quinoa
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 jalapenos, roughly chopped - pith and seeds removed
  • 2 carrots, scrubbed and roughly chopped
  • 3 stalks celery, roughly chopped
  • 3 (15 ounce) cans black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 cups quick cooking oats
  • 2 tablespoons paprika
  • 2 tablespoons garlic powder or minced garlic
  • ½ onion, minced
  • 1-2 tsps seasoning salt (or regular salt to taste)
  • 2 tsp black pepper (or to taste)
  • 2 tablespoons ground flax seeds
  • Cooking oil, as needed (I use coconut or peanut oil)
How to Do It
  1. Add quinoa to pot with water, and bring to boil. Cover and simmer until done, about 15 minutes.
  2. Put jalapenos, carrots, celery and onion into food processor. Grind into small bits.
  3. While quinoa is cooking, put beans into a large bowl and mash thoroughly. Try using a pastry blender - the sharp edges really get in there and do a great job breaking up the tough outer coating of the beans. Add spices (and minced garlic if you used it), and distribute thoroughly through beans.
  4. Once quinoa is cooked, put quinoa, veggies, and oats into bowl with the beans and mix thoroughly with large spoon.
  5. Add ground flax, and mash all ingredients together with hands. Really dig in there and squish the ingredients together.
  6. Take one handful of mixture and shape into a patty about ½" thick; repeat until all mixture is used (should make 15-18 patties).
  7. Place into hot oil and brown to golden on each side.
  8. Serve on bun with lettuce, tomato, vegan cheese, and your usual burger condiments.
