Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 1 carrot diced
  • 4 scallions sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 15- ounce can black beans drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup Italian seasoned dried breadcrumbs
  • 1 large egg lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoons olive oil

Instructions

  • In a small pot, bring 3/4 cup water to a boil. Add quinoa, cover, and reduce heat to low. Cook until liquid is absorbed, 12 to 14 minutes; set aside to cool.
  • In a food processor, pulse carrot until finely chopped. Add the scallions, garlic, beans, breadcrumbs, egg, cumin, salt, and pepper; pulse until combined but still slightly chunky. Stir in the cooked quinoa. The mixture will be crumbly, but you can feel free to add another egg (or 2 egg whites) if you feel like you need to help the mixture stick together better. Form into 4 even patties.
  • In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Carefully add the patties and cook until browned and crisp, about 8 minutes per side.
