Instructions
  1. Stir together 1 ½ cups water and quinoa in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 15 minutes, or until all of the liquid is absorbed. This should yield about 1 ½ cups cooked quinoa.
  2. In a food processor, put the onion, sun-dried tomatoes, ½ of the beans, the garlic, steak seasoning, black pepper and ¾ cup cooked quinoa. Blend until smooth. Transfer to a bowl and stir in the remaining beans and ¾ cup cooked quinoa.
  3. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Spray well with cooking spray. Form the bean and quinoa mixture into 6 burger patties. Cook the patties in the pan about 4 to 5 minutes on each side. Flip using a wide spatula. Respray the pan between batches.
Recipe Notes

Chef’s Note: These burgers are soft in the middle and have a different texture than a meat hamburger but have lots of flavor. Double the recipe to make extra and freeze for quick lunches or dinners another time.
