  • 14 oz canned black beans, low sodium, drained & rinsed

  • 1 1/2 cups cooked quinoa

  • 1/2 cup chopped greens (kale, spinach)

  • 1/2 tbsp garlic, minced

  • 2 tsp dried oregano

  • 1/4 tsp turmeric

  • 1 tsp fresh lemon zest

  • 1/4 tsp cumin

  • 1/2 tsp salt, plus more to taste

  • 1 egg

  • 1 tbsp olive oil (for cooking)


  1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add oil, chopped greens, and garlic. Cook until garlic is fragrant, stirring occasionally for 4-5 minutes. Transfer to a bowl to cool.

  2. Add drained/rinsed beans to a large bowl and mash with a fork or potato masher. Add quinoa, cooled greens, spices, salt, and egg. Stir or mash until well combined and place in the fridge to chill for at least 30 minutes or overnight (this helps the burger to stay together while cooking).

  3. Scoop about 1/3 cup of burger into hands and shape. You should get about 5 patties.

  4. In a large skillet, over medium heat, add olive oil and heat through. Place burger patties in the pan without crowding. Allow patties to cool slightly and enjoy on buns with your favorite topping.

  5. Enjoy!
