Quinoa Black Bean Burgers
- 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
- 1/4 cup quinoa

- 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin

- Mix the quinoa, bread crumbs, bell pepper, onion, garlic, cumin, salt, hot pepper sauce, and egg into the black beans using your hands.
- Form the black bean mixture into 5 patties.
- Heat the olive oil in a large skillet.

- Serve with whole wheat burger buns or a romaine lettuce wrap and fixings.
