  • 1 cup cooked quinoa (185g)
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed (15 oz or 425g)
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs

Cooking Instructions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, mash the black beans with a fork until they are mostly mashed but still have some texture.

  2. Add the cooked quinoa, bread crumbs, diced red onion, minced garlic, chopped cilantro, ground cumin, paprika, salt, and black pepper to the bowl. Mix well until all the ingredients are evenly combined.

  3. Shape the mixture into 4 patties, pressing firmly to ensure they hold together.
