Day 476- Nutrition Bite

Quinoa Black Bean Burgers

Ingredients

  • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/4 cup quinoa
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup minced yellow bell pepper
  • 2 tablespoons minced onion
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce (such as Frank's RedHot®)
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

Directions

  1. Bring the quinoa and water to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the quinoa is tender and the water has been absorbed, about 15 to 20 minutes.
  2. Roughly mash the black beans with a fork leaving some whole black beans in a paste-like mixture.
  3. Mix the quinoa, bread crumbs, bell pepper, onion, garlic, cumin, salt, hot pepper sauce, and egg into the black beans using your hands.
  4. Form the black bean mixture into 5 patties.
  5. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet.
  6. Cook the patties in the hot oil until heated through, 2 to 3 minutes per side.

My cousin made this burgers a few weeks ago. They are tasty. Tonight, my cousin, aunt, and mom  are helping me canning applesauce. I didn't realize that it would be so much work. On Sunday, I was visiting my parent's rental property and noticed apples going to waste.  I decided to be industrious and learn to can apples and may also learn to make fruit leather.
