Black Bean Burgers

From our test kitchen to your home kitchen

What We're Making

This is probably one of my favorite Meal Prep Monday recipes!! These quick and easy black bean and quinoa burgers are a perfect alternative to a meat patty–they are also Vegan as well. The recipe took me about 15 mins from start to finish (including cooking the quinoa!).

The recipe makes 4 burgers or you can double and have extras for lunch or dinner. You can eat these over a salad (burger salad!) or add to a thin bun (I prefer Food For Life Ezekiel english muffins)




1 15oz can black beans

1/3 cup cooked quinoa

1/3 cup breadcrumbs

2)add beans to a medium bowl and mash

3)add quinoa, tomato paste, breadcrumbs and spices 4)mix until everything is well mixed.
