  • 180 g. | 1 cup Quinoa dry
  • 340 g. | 340 cups Black beans cooked
  • 40 g. | ¼ cup Mexican chorizo seasoning


  • When using dry beans, soak and cook ⅔ cup (113 g.) of dry black beans according to the method if necessary. Cook the quinoa according to the package instructions.
  • Preheat the oven to 375°F/190°C and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Add the cooked black beans, quinoa and spices to a food processor and blend into a chunky mixture, scraping down the sides of the food processor to prevent any lumps if necessary.
  • Alternatively, add the ingredients to a large bowl and mash them into a chunky mixture.
  • Put all of the mixture on the baking sheet, flatten it into a 1-inch-thick square, cut the square into 8 patties and if preferred, shape each patty into a circle before baking.
  • Bake the patties for 10 minutes, then take the baking sheet out of the oven, flip the patties and bake for another 10 minutes.
  • Take the patties out of the oven once the crust is crispy and browned and let them cool down for about a minute.
  • Serve the patties with the optional toppings, whole wheat buns and enjoy!
  • Store the patties in an airtight container in the fridge, and consume within 3 days. Alternatively, store each patty separately in the freezer, using Ziploc bags, for a maximum of 60 days and thaw at room temperature. Use a microwave, toaster oven, or frying pan to reheat the patties.


Don’t use canned black beans because they’re too mushy for a solid burger patty!
Alternatively add a binder such as flour if you don’t have any other options.
Substitute the Mexican chorizo seasoning for a Cajun spice mix and add ¼ cup smoked chipotles.
