Quinoa Salad:
Black Bean Burger Recipe at

The problem with so many veggie burger recipes is the blah, mushy texture. Not these, boyee! Black bean quinoa burgers are high-protein and nutrient-dense. I added minced kale though you can use spinach, but kale gives a more interesting texture. Mashed black beans, chewy quinoa, crunchy almonds and a smidge of cheese (optional!) make sure these are firm and dense and while not tasting like a meat burger, they will at least give your molars something to get in to.

For instructions on how to cook quinoa, read/watch this post about quinoa salad. In fact, for time’s sake, why don’t you make the quinoa salad and cook an extra 1/2 cup of quinoa while you’re at it? Then use leftover quinoa to make the black bean burgers. That’s a pretty smart idea, right?

Be sure to drain the beans very well before mashing. If you don’t, your bean burger dough will be too soft and you’ll need to add a bunch more breadcrumbs to make up for it. You can substitute oat flour or gluten-free breadcrumbs, too, for gluten-free veggie burgers.

  1. Wow just saw my comment lol I’ve seen this video so many times and used it so many times <3 I miss your "Put it in my mouth episodes" though!! Please make more if you can! God bless you and your fam!

  2. These veggie burgers are SOOO good! I decided to try this recipe after sifting through 7373773 different veggie burger recipes on YouTube and Pinterest, and I’ve tried quite a few, but this one by far is my favorite! It’s simple and easy to make but it’s flavorful and makes a huge difference when you actually sautée the veggies and kale before adding it to the mixture. Thanks so much for the awesome recipe! Can’t wait to try out the other version too! 🤗

  3. You are absolutely adorable!  I have been a vegetarian for about 4 years now.  I went a while ago and had a take out veggie burger which made me very sick to my stomach.  I know it was that because I hadn’t consumed anything else that day.  I have been looking for a veggie burger recipe and this seems to fit the bill perfectly.  Thanks
