Quinoa Black Bean Burgers (Kopie)

Makes 7 to 8 burgers

As is, this recipe is easily vegetarian and vegan (just don’t cook the quinoa in chicken broth); by swapping the bread crumbs with a gluten-free option (or omitting them entirely), it could also be gluten-free.

1 cup organic quinoa, soaked overnight, cooked in water/broth
1 cup black beans, soaked overnight, cooked in water
Coconut oil (or other high-heat oil)
1/4 onion, diced
1/2 small green bell pepper, diced
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 carrot, chopped
2 stalks of celery, chopped
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon tumeric
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
Hefty dashes of salt and pepper
1/4 to 1/2 cup toasted bread crumbs (I made mine by toasting sourdough and blending in a food processor with a few dried herbs)

1. Cook beans and quinoa:
Begin by cooking the black beans (I soaked mine overnight, drained the liquid, then cooked the beans with three cups water, 1 cup beans, adding a little salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer and cover for 45 minutes) and, in a separate pot, cooking the quinoa (I soaked mine overnight, drained and rinsed it, then cooked it with a cup of water and 3/4 cups stock for about 25 minutes). Let cool.

2. Saute veggies:
On the stove, sauté the onion, pepper, garlic, carrot and celery with spices (and salt and pepper) in oil until soft and cooked through. Set aside to cool.

3. Combine everything in food processor:
In a food processor, add the cooked and cooled beans, cooled veggies and some salt and pepper. Pulse until just combined.
Add the cooked quinoa; again pulse until combined.

4. Make your burgers:
Hand form the mixture into palm-sized burger patties and lay on a baking sheet or in a baking dish lined with parchment paper.

Refrigerate for at least 10 minutes. Remove from fridge, let cool for 5 minutes, then push down each side in bread crumbs, being sure to push down to adhere the breadcrumbs to the burger.

Saute in coconut oil until browned and crisp on each side. Eat on bread as burgers or eat solo like a fried veggie cake.

Baked option: Bake in 400-degree for 12 minutes, flipping halfway.
