4. Blend or mash.

5. Section out into portions and fry or place on a baking sheet covered in saran wrap or wax paper, freeze till you can handle them. But into zip lock bag, sometimes if I know it is going to take me awhile to eat them I first wrap them in saran wrap then put into a zip lock bag. For pictures of me using saran wrap check out this post.

Black bean and quinoa burgers

I feel like it is quite obvious I have gone a health food kick. I might have over done it of the beans but they were half off, and you can never go wrong with some extra beans sitting around. I am thinking I am going to need to make some chili pretty soon.

Black bean and quinoa burgers

Ingredients 2-3 burgers
1/4 cup dry quinoa
3/4 cup cooked black beans I used canned black beans
a bit of chopped onion
2-3 buns

Directions
1. Add quinoa and water plus seasonings to pot. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 20 minutes, or until all liquid is absorbed. you will end up with 3/4 cup quinoa, making it equal portions of quinoa and black beans.

2. Add quinoa, black beans, onion to a food processor, blend.

3. Take a burger size portion and fry in pre heated skillet, flip.

4. Make a yummy burger.

My Lunch


Pinto mushroom burgers

For lunch I made a pinto bean veggie burger with baked zucchini on the side. I really liked it, it was better than I expected it to be. Next time I am going to make the patty a bit small though. The patty even looked like a meat burger, my roommate was very concerned when she saw me eat some before it was cook because she thought it was raw meat.

Baked zucchini Serving 2-4

Ingredients
-2 zucchini

Directions
– Slice zucchini approximately all the same size.
– Spray baking sheet with cooking spray, put zucchini of baking sheet.
– Season, I used salt, pepper, garlic salt
– Bake about 20 mins

Pinto mushroom burgers Serving 3-4

Ingredients
1 can of pinto beans
about half a box of fresh mushrooms sliced
half a small onion diced
Minced garlic
Sliced of avocado if you want
Cheese
Buns

Directions
1. Saute the onions and garlic in olive oil for 3 to 5 minutes, until onions are soft. Add mushrooms and cook for another 5 minutes. Set aside.

2.Mash the beans. Add the mushrooms and seasonings. Mix together. I would have been using my immersion blender if it still worked 😦

3.Shape the mixture into patties. Cook each patty, about 3 minutes on each side.

My Lunch

Side note, I have ADD and my rule to using the broiler is I have to stay right in front of the oven and not do any thing else. Yesterday I didn’t fallow my rule and burns the buns. So today I used the toaster and I turn it down to two and this still happened 😦
