Summer time barbecues are one of my favorite things in the world. When I switched to a plant based diet, I immediately started looking for ways to keep grilling. These black bean and quinoa patties are a great option for summer cookouts without all the added fat and salt from the store bought veggie patties.
- 1 Can of Black Beans, rinsed and drained
- 1 Cup of Quinoa
- 1/3 Cup of BBQ Sauce
- 2 Cloves of Garlic
- 1/2 Cup of Onion, diced
- 1 Tablespoon of Liquid Smoke
- 2 Cups of Water
- 1 Cup of Whole Wheat Bread Crumbs
Place quinoa in a pot with 2 cups of water. Bring to a boil, lower heat, and simmer until Quinoa has absorbed water.
Place cooked quinoa in the refrigerator to cool.
While quinoa is cooling, place beans, BBQ sauce, onion, garlic, and liquid smoke into a food processor. Pulse until a paste is formed. If you do not have a food processor, place in a bowl and mash with a fork or potato masher.
Mix quinoa into the bean mixture.
Stir in bread crumbs, and place in refrigerator for a half hour.
Remove mixture from refrigerator and form into 4 - 5inch patties. Make sure they are no more than half an inch thick.
Cook in a non stick pan or on a grill until both sides are crispy.
Place in bun, and top with your favorite burger toppings.
