Black Bean Quinoa Burger Recipe is super easy to make, economical, few ingredients and full of flavor. Great to make in large batches and freeze for future use also. 



2 cups cooked quinoa

1 tablespoon coconut oil

1 oz shiitake mushrooms, chopped

1/2 cup onion, diced small

8 grape tomatoes, quartered

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 15 ounce can black beans

1 egg equivalent with egg replacer (vegan) or 1 egg

1/2  teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped

2 avocados

1/2 lime, juiced

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped

2 tablespoons coconut oil

micro-greens or chopped kale

1 roasted red peppers, diced

hot pepper sauce *optional

6 burger buns 


  1. Cook quinoa according to directions. Prep all ingredients.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoons coconut oil (med-low) in a fry pan and add shiitake mushrooms. In 5 minutes, add onions & garlic. Add tomato when onions are softened and cook an additional 5 minutes.
  3. Place 2 cups quinoa in a medium bowl and mix in the sauté ingredients. Strain beans & rinse. Mash with a fork and then add to the bowl. Blend in egg, salt, and parsley. 
  4. When thoroughly blended, form 6 patties and place on a parchment lined baking sheet.
  5. Heat 2 tablespoons coconut oil in a non-stick pan, and fry the patties approximately 7 minutes per side or bake at 375° for 20 minutes.
  6. Prepare avocado mixture - halve, scoop, mash and blend in cilantro, lime and salt.
  7. Place burgers on a bun and top with avocado mixture, micro-greens, diced roasted red pepper. Optional: hot sauce.



*I recommended using an ice cream scooper to measure out the patties so they are evenly sized - 2 large scoops per patty
