Black bean Quinoa Burgers

1 15 oz.can black beans, rinsed and drained
1/4 cup quinoa
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup whole wheat bread crumbs
1/4 cup minced yellow bell pepper
2 Tbsp minced onion
1 large clove minced garlic
1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp Sriracha sauce
1 egg
3 Tbsp olive oil

In a medium pot, bring the quinoa and water to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cover pot and simmer until the water has been absorbed and the quinoa is tender (about 15 to 20 minutes).

Roughly mash the black beans with a fork until you have a sticky mixture (similar to the texture of ground beef/turkey). Add the quinoa, bread crumbs, bell pepper, onion, garlic, cumin, salt, hot pepper sauce, and egg into the black beans. Mix using using your hands.

Form the black bean mixture into 6 patties. Heat some olive oil in a large skillet. Cook the patties in the hot oil for 2 to 3 minutes per side, until heated through.
