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
3/4 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.
