Black Bean Quinoa Burgers with Sriracha Chobani Sauce.

Last night I wanted to make a lovely meatless Monday dish.  My family are total carnivores and I always am leery about making any vegetarian dish – but they loved it.  The texture is a bit different and I don’t recommend cooking these on the grill because they are a bit more fragile than a protein-packed meat burger.  I cooked them on my indoor griddle pan (flat side) and it worked great.  A large sauté pan would also be perfect.  I served mine over sauteed spinach and kale.  My family had them with sweet potato fries and raw veggies.  Whatever works for you.

Ingredients:

Olive oil
2 cups of cooked quinoa (according to the package details)
1/4 of a yellow onion, finely diced
1 large shallot, finely chopped
1/2 of a red bell pepper, diced
2-4 garlic cloves, minced
1 16 oz can of black beans (low sodium) drained and rinsed well
1 teaspoon of cumin
1 teaspoon chipotle chili powder
1 cup bread crumbs (seasoned)

Directions:

Heat the sauté pan with olive oil. Add the onion and pepper for about 4 minutes then add the garlic.  Cook for an additional one minute then remove from the stove to cool.  In your food processor add the black beans, cumin, chipotle powder, quinoa and cooled mixture.  Pulse 4-5 times until chopped but not pasty.  Remove and form into patties.  Add the bread crumbs to a large plate and press the bean burger into the crumbs on both sides and set aside.  Repeat until done.  Heat your griddle or pan with additional olive oil until hot.  Add the patties to cook and heat through.  They are fragile in nature so use caution when flipping.  I let brown on each side for about 4 minutes and then serve.

Sauce:

1/2 cup of non fat plain Chobani
1/2 teaspoon of ground cumin
2-3 tablespoons of Sriracha sauce (depending on your taste)

Blend together and top each burger.

  1. These look good, wondering how many servings this makes? How many patties, who many patties do you serve to each person? Trying to figure out calorie count!

    1. I know I should’ve noted that but I’m struggling to remember. I believe 4 normal sized patties but no more than 5. Insert sad face that I can’t give you the exact number. oxo

    1. Karolyn, I’m working on adding nutritional stats per recipe but I haven’t found the perfect fit yet. You can use any app that you may have on your phone for the time being. It is definitely a work in progress for me.

  2. This was dinner tonight. Food processor was not working so mushed with a potato smasher and it worked just as well. They were delicious! Thanks
