Chickpea-Quinoa Burgers

I based this on Mark Bittman's Simplest Bean Burgers from How to Cook Everything Vegetarian, but changed it to include quinoa.

  • 2 cups well cooked chickpeas (garbonzo beans) or 1 14 oz. can (drained)
  • 1 medium onion (quartered)
  • 1/2 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1 Tbsp chili powder or spice mix of your choice
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheese (optional - I used a Colby mix)
  • Vegetable broth or water (if needed)
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil

  • Combine ingredients (except broth and olive oil) in food processor and pulse until chunky but not pureed. Add broth if needed to keep from sticking.
  • Let mixture rest a minute, then shape into patties with wet hands.
  • Let patties rest while you heat the oil in a skillet.
  • Cook each patty until nicely brown on each side.
  • Serve with your favorite burger fixins!
These were a bit crumbly but so delicious!
