Directions for: Southwest Black Bean Burger



1 can black beans

½ red onion

1 clove garlic

¼ cup uncooked quinoa

½ sweet potato

1 tsp ground cumin

½ tsp chili powder

½ tsp paprika

¼ cup cilantro

½ cup spelt flour

¼ tsp sea salt

Simple Guacamole

1 - 2 avocados

½ lime, squeezed

4 cherry tomatoes, chopped

1 pinch sea salt



1. Preheat oven to 350°F or heat grill.

2. Place ¼ cup of quinoa in a pot with 1 cup of water, bring to a boil and simmer for 15 minutes.

3. Place all other ingredients, except for the simple guacamole, into a good processor and blend until it’s a smooth yet textured consistency.

4. Place in a bowl and add the quinoa. Mix and shape into patties.

5. Place in the oven and bake for 25-35 minutes. Or place on grill for about 10 minutes per side. You may want to place the burgers on tinfoil over the grill to prevent them from crumbling and falling through.

Simple Guacamole
