Black Bean Chili Burgers

1 cup water
1/2 cup quinoa, rinsed
2 cups black bean flakes
1 1/2 cups boiling water
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
2 green onions, chopped
1/2 cup red bell pepper, chopped
1/2 cup plain bread crumbs
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vegetable oil

2 cups lettuce, shredded
1 cup grated lo-fat cheddar cheese or cheddar-style soy
1/2 cup nonfat sour cream
1 cup bottled salsa
avocado, diced
ripe olives, sliced
green onions, chopped

Bring 1 cup water to a boil in a small saucepan. Add quinoa, cover
and simmer 15 minutes.

Place black bean flakes in a medium-sized bowl. Stir in boiling
water. Cover and let stand 5 minutes.

Combine 1/2 cup cooked quinoa with black beans, chili powder, cumin,

each side. Serve topped with lettuce, cheese, nonfat sour cream,
salsa and other garnishes, as desired.

Interesting combination, very tasty and easy, May 10, 2005 - 09:23 AM
Reviewer: Skay from Lully, Switzerland
This is a great recipe for those who like unusual combinations in a protein-rich vegetarian dish that is also easy to prepare. I didn't have any black bean flakes, so I simply used regular cooked ones. You just throw everything into a large cutter, make the patties and fry in a little oil. Great with a green salad and some kind of condiment (I puton the table a jar of onions and raisins confit and homemade black olive tapenade, though I think salsa would also be very good. I've edited the recipe somewhat.
