Meatless Monday: Loaded Veggie Burgers

We tend to fall off the Meatless Monday wagon, but we make up for it other days of the week.  My friend referred me to this recipe for Veggie Burgers - she said they were amazing, but honestly, she had me at "throw it all in the processor." 
...And you do!

Shall we? OK, here goes:

Loaded Veggie Burgers
adapted from here

  • 1/2 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 1 carrot, diced
  • 4 green onions, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 red bell pepper
  • 15 ounces cooked black beans, drained
  • 1/4 cup Italian seasoned dried breadcrumbs
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  1. Cook quinoa according to directions - set aside.
  2. In a food processor, pulse carrot until finely chopped. Add cooked quinoa, onions, garlic, bell pepper, beans, breadcrumbs, egg, cumin, salt, and pepper; pulse until combined but still slightly chunky.
  3. Form mixture into patties - mine made about six. 
  4. In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium; cook burgers until browned, about 8 minutes per side.
