Blue Rings

Ingredients

Black beans, quinoa, breadcrumbs, onion, garlic, bell peppers, spices (such as cumin, paprika, and chili powder), and your favorite burger toppings.

Black Beans

Drain and rinse your black beans, then mash them in a large bowl using a fork or potato masher until they form a chunky paste.

Mix in Quinoa

Add cooked quinoa to the mashed black beans. Quinoa adds texture and boosts the protein content of your burger.

Add Flavor

Sprinkle in cumin, paprika, chili powder, salt, and pepper to season your burger mixture. Adjust the spices to suit your taste preferences.

Breadcrumbs

Mix in breadcrumbs to bind the ingredients together. This helps to form patties that hold their shape while cooking.

Form Patties

Divide the mixture into equal portions and shape them into burger patties using your hands. Make sure they're compact enough to hold together.

Veggie Burgers

Heat a non-stick skillet or grill pan over medium heat. Cook the patties for about 4-5 minutes on each side, or until they develop a crispy exterior and are heated through.

Toast Your Buns

While your patties cook, lightly toast your burger buns in the oven or on a separate skillet for added flavor and texture.

Assemble

Once your patties are done, assemble your burgers with your favorite toppings such as lettuce, tomato, avocado, onions, and condiments like ketchup or mustard.
