Quinoa Bean Burgers

#MeatlessMonday My 6’3″ All American, Meatless Critic father, has approved this recipe. (So good!)
Quinoa Bean Burgers
• 2 cups cooked quinoa
• 1 cup cannellini or black beans, mashed
• 1/2 cup oat flour (ground oats)
• 1 large egg, lightly beaten
• 1 clove garlic, grated
• 1 tsp cumin
• 1 teaspoon chipotle chili powder
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1/2 teaspoon pepper
• 3/4 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded (optional)
• Extra Virgin Olive Oil
In a bowl combine the cooked quinoa, mashed beans, oat flour, egg, garlic, cumin, chipotle chili powder, salt and pepper. Mix well to moisten the ingredients and then mix in the shredded cheddar cheese (optional). Mix well again and form into 4 or 5 equal burger patties (I made 5). Place 1 tablespoon olive oil into skillet on medium high. Grab the quinoa burgers and cook until golden and crisp, about five minutes per side. During the last minute or so of cooking top with your favorite cheese, cover the pan and cook 2-3 minutes or until the cheese has melted. Enjoy!
