I used to make a lot of vegan burgers in the past. Usually from sweet corn, beans or chickpeas. But when I tested out the black quinoa, I knew that this is the perfect burger ingredient. Black quinoa has a specific flavor and harder texture. So even if you overcook it, it will not get mushy as the white quinoa would for example.

Last but not least the combination of black quinoa, black beans, and carrots is really tasty.  The burgers are not falling apart, and they can be fried in a pan or baked in the oven.

Directions

  1. Place the quinoa into a fine mesh colander and rinse under running water for 30 seconds. Combine the quinoa and water in a pot (or a saucepan) and bring to boil. Then reduce the heat and cook the quinoa uncovered for 15-20 minutes, or until all the water is absorbed. When quinoa is done, remove from heat, cover, and let the quinoa steam for 5 minutes. Let to cool completely. 
  2. Drain and rinse the black beans. Peel and shred the carrots. Slice the burger buns in half and dry roast on a pan. Peel and thinly slice the red onion. Cut through the avocado, discard the pit and slice into thick slices. 
  3. Transfer the cooked quinoa black beans, chili powder, salt, and carrots in a food processor and blend for 3-4 minutes or until everything is combined and holds together.
  4. Heat the olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat.
  5. Form 2 patties out of the quinoa mixture and place in the pan.
  6. Bake for 3 minutes on each side.
  7. Serve the quinoa burgers on top of the toasted buns and fresh rucola. Place the red onion and avocado slices on top.
