Chef Ayelet’s Notes:

We have worked through various veggie burger recipes in our kitchen and have finally settled on this delicious black bean burger that is improved by some cooked quinoa that is added in. The flavors are tasty and the texture is crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. It holds together well! If you plan ahead, you can make the quinoa and mash the beans a day in advance so that the process of making the burgers goes faster.
