Veggie Burger: Step 1
It is always better to purchase whole-grain buns rather than the ones available in the store: reason being, the use of preservatives. Preheat your oven to about 350 degrees and gently spread half can of beans on a foil-lined baking sheet. Allow it to bake for about 20 minutes at 350 degrees.
Veggie Burger: Step 2
Set your saucepan for heating at a medium flame. Add a tablespoon of oil into the pan, followed by shallots and three tablespoons of Quinoa. Keep continually stirring and cook until it is toasted. Add 6-7 tablespoons of water and allow it to boil. Now, wait for the liquid to be absorbed.
Veggie Burger: Step 3
Use two tablespoons of Quinoa, garlic, beans, and mushroom in a food processor and pulse until it is chopped roughly. Add the quinoa mixture, serrano, cilantro and half a teaspoon of salt, chili powder, and egg and mix well. Now, it is time to divide the mixture into equal parts and turn part into a half-inch patty.
Use a large pan and heat it at medium flame. Add a tablespoon of oil and add the patties. Cook for 10 minutes while stirring gently.
Take a tablespoon of lime juice, avocado, and tomatillo and add one-eighth of a tablespoon of salt and mash them to get the desired texture.
Place one patty on the bottom half of the bun. Use onion and tomato slices to make a topping. You can also use an avocado mixture in light quantities. Top it with another bun and your Black Bean-Quinoa Burger is ready to serve.
