1/2 cup dry quinoa
1 (14 oz.) can black beans, dried and rinsed
3 tbsp almond flour
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp finely chopped white onion
1 tsp chili powder
salt to taste
1 egg lightly beaten
3 tbsp olive oil
1. Place the beans in a medium bowl and mash with a fork until chunky. Add 1 cup of the sprouted quinoa, flour, garlic, onion, and chili powder; stir to combine. Season with salt to taste, then fold in the egg.
2. Heat the oil in a large skillet (preferably cast iron) over medium heat.
3. Divide the mixture into four balls and use your hands to shape each into patties. Carefully place the patties in the hot skillet and cook until browned and crispy, about 4 minutes, before flipping and cooking for an additional 3-4 minutes until golden brown and crispy on both sides.
4. Top with favorite salsa and/or avocado. Enjoy!
