Red Bean "veggie" Patties

I just HAD to share another version of the Black Bean Quinoa Patties.  My husband asks for these weekly!!!  And he's a carnivore!  This is a much healthier and low fat version of a burger.  Find out how I'm getting into Bikini Shape.

This time around I used Red Beans because I had a bunch left over from 
Red Bean Stew.  I cooked 2 small bags (24 ounces total) of dried beans so I had plenty for "burgers" tonight.

Red Bean Veggie Patties


2 cups cooked red beans
3/4 cup cooked Quinoa
3 eggs
3/4 cup bread crumbs
2 tablespoons minced onions
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon hot pepper flakes (cayenne)
1/2 teaspoon cayenne powder (optional)

Roughly mash the red beans with a fork leaving some whole red beans in a paste-like mixture. 
Mix the cooked quinoa, bread crumbs, onion, garlic, cumin, salt, hot pepper flakes, and egg into the RED beans using your hands.
Form the bean mixture into 5 or 6 patties.

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet.

Cook the patties in the hot oil until heated through, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Add cheese if you would like.

Serve as patties or on a bun like a "burger."  These were so easy to make (again) that I've decided to make a triple batch and freeze for future meals.
