Vegan quinoa burgers!
Here are two different types of homemade quinoa burgers I made.
Black bean quinoa burger 
1 can rinsed black beans
1/2 cup chopped onions
1 1/2 cup cooked quinoa
Chop up the onions and saute with 1/2 the beans. Add spices (2 tsp steak sauce or steak seasoning, garlic powder, salt n pepper, chili flakes). 
After onions are soft, put mixture in food processor with quinoa. Blend til it becomes a batter consistency. 
Mix with the other half of the beans and stir together until consistently thick. 
Make 2” diameter patties 1” thick and place on well oiled cookie sheet. 
Cook on 350 degrees on one side for 20 minutes then flip them over for another 10 minutes and done!
Garbonzo bean curry quinoa burger
1 1/2 cup cooked quinoa
1 tbsp Curry powder 
1/2 cuo chopped onions
1tbsp flax seeds/3tbsp water mixed
Chop up the onions and saute with 1/2 the beans. Add spices (1tbsp curry powder)
After onions are soft, put mixture in food processor with quinoa. Blend til it becomes a batter consistency. 
Mix with the other half of the beans and stir together until consistently thick. 
Lastly mix in water/flax combination (for consistency and to hold burgers together).
Make 2” diameter patties 1” thick and place on well oiled cookie sheet. 
Cook on 350 degrees on one side for 20 minutes then flip them over for another 10 minutes and done!
Top with condiments of choice. I went with a tahini sauce for the curry patty and a thousand island sauce for the black bean burger.  View high resolution

If you haven’t had quinoa yet, you must. It’s been a huge part of my diet for years now, and this new(ish) one from Trader Joes makes it even more fun and interesting. View high resolution
