  • 1 Onion Finely diced
  • 2 cloves Garlic Minced

  • 1 tsp Ground Cumin
  • 1 tsp Dried Oregano
  • 2 tbsp Tamari

  • Mix together the ground flax seeds and 5 tablespoons water in a small bowl and set aside.
  • Pour the drained black beans into a food processor along with the quinoa, oats, onions and all the spices. Process until everything is combined and pour in the flax seed egg. Process once more to mix everything together. Place the mixture in the refrigerator to set for 20 minutes.

For Baking:

  • Preheat the oven to 375F.
  • Next, divide the mixture into evenly sized balls and gently press them flat. Place the patties on a baking sheet covered with baking parchment and drizzle a little olive oil on top.
  • Cook the patties in the middle of the oven for 15-20 minutes, carefully flipping them over halfway through.

For searing:

  • Heat a large pan with olive oil and cook the patties for around 3 minutes on each side or until they are golden and crispy (note: if you flip the patties too soon they will stick to the pan).

Making the burger:

  • Once the burger patties are done, assemble your burgers with all the toppings you want.
