Quinoa veggie burger with black beans



1/2 cup dry quinoa

1 tsp olive oil

1/2 red onion, chopped

3 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 tsp Kosher salt, divided

1 can black beans, drained and rinsed

2 Tbsp tomato paste

1 large egg

2/3 cup frozen corn

1/2 cup coriander, chopped

1 chipotle in adobo, minced

2 tsp ground cumin

1/2 cup rolled oats

1/4 cup oat flour

Yoghurt Sauce:

1/2 cup plain fat-free Greek yoghurt

1 Tbsp honey

1 Tbsp Dijon mustard


Place the quinoa in a small saucepan with 1 cup of water. Set the saucepan over medium-high heat and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover the pan, and cook 10-15 minutes until the water is absorbed and quinoa is cooked. Remove from heat. Note: this step can be done ahead of time. 

Heat the oil in a small pan over medium heat and add the onion and garlic. Add 1/4 teaspoon salt and sauté until onions are softened about 5-6 minutes. Place the mixture into a large bowl. Add black beans to the bowl and using a potato masher or fork, mash together until a pasty mixture forms. 

Stir in the tomato paste, egg, corn, coriander, chipotles, cumin and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Stir in the cooked quinoa, oats, and oat flour until well mixed. Form the mixture into 6 equal patties, compacting them well with your hands as you form them. Place the patties on a baking sheet, cover with cling film and refrigerate for at least a few hours or overnight. 

To make the yoghurt sauce.

Stir the yoghurt, honey and mustard together in a small bowl. 

When ready to eat, preheat the oven to 200 degrees C or heat a griddle to medium-high heat. If baking, spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray and place the patties on the sheet cook 10-12 minutes until the patties are golden brown and crispy.

Carefully flip them over and cook another 10 minutes. If using a griddle, heat 4-6 minutes per side or until slightly golden. 

Serve patties with the yoghurt sauce.
