Cooking Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, mash the black beans with a fork or potato masher until they are mostly mashed but still have some texture.
  2. Add the cooked quinoa, breadcrumbs, onion, garlic, cilantro, cumin, paprika, salt, and black pepper to the bowl. Mix well until all the ingredients are evenly combined.
  3. Shape the mixture into 4 equal-sized patties, about 1/2-inch thick.

  5. Remove the patties from the skillet and let them cool slightly before serving.
