  • 1/2 cup dry quinoa
  • water
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 red onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp Kosher salt, divided
  • 1 (15 oz) can of black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 Tbsp tomato paste (a combo of ketchup & BBQ would work too)
  • 1 large egg
  • 2/3 cup frozen corn
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup oat flour


  1. Place the quinoa in a small saucepan with 3/4 cup of water.
  2. Set the saucepan over medium-high heat and bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce heat to low, cover the pan, and cook for 10-15 minutes until the water is absorbed and the quinoa is cooked.
  4. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  5. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a small pan over medium heat and add the onion and garlic.
  6. Add ¼ teaspoon salt and sauté until onions are softened, 5-6 minutes.
  7. Place the mixture into a large bowl.
  8. Add black beans to the bowl and using a potato masher or fork, mash together until a pasty mixture forms.
  9. Stir in the tomato paste, egg, corn, cilantro, cumin, and remaining ¼ teaspoon salt.
  10. Stir in the cooked quinoa, oats, and oat flour until well-mixed.
  11. Form the mixture into 6 equal patties, compacting them well with your hands as you form them.
  12. Place the patties on a baking sheet, cover them with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least a few hours or overnight.
  13. When ready to eat, preheat the oven to 400 F or heat a griddle to medium-high heat.
  14. If baking, spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray and place the patties on the sheet cook for 10-12 minutes until the patties are golden brown and crispy.
  15. Carefully flip the over and cook another 10 minutes.
  16. If using a griddle, heat for 4-6 minutes per side or until slightly golden.
  17. Serve patties on toasted buns with lettuce.

  1. This looks amazing. I found you on Unlimited Link Party. I would need to make slight changes due to my egg allergy and gluten allergy, but I think this could work. I saved the recipe. Have a wonderful week.
