Mexican Black Bean Quinoa Burgers

These are easy to make and a delicious alternative burger.  They are loaded with protein from the quinoa and beans.  We had them for a nice filling lunch but they would also make a great dinner.  You can always make the patties up, freeze them and then have them for a quick dinner when you are rushed for time.

1 c. cooked quinoa
1 tsp olive oil
1/4 red onion, chopped
 2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp salt,
 1 (15 oz) can black beans, drained and rinsed
2 Tbsp tomato paste
1 large egg
2/3 cup frozen corn
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
1 chipotle in adobo, minced
2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup oat flour ( put a little bit more than 1/4 c. of rolled oats in a food processor and blend)

In a saucepan heat the oil, add the onion and garlic and saute until tender.  Add the beans to the pan and mash the beans until they only have a few chunks.  Put remaining ingredients in a large bowl, then add in the beans and onion mixture.  Divide into 1/6's.  Make each 1/6 into a patty.  Heat 1 T. oil in the same saucepan.  Cook each burger about 3-4 minutes on each side.  If desired top with cheese.

Place a burger in a bun topped with sliced tomato and some lettuce.
1 avocado
1 T. lime juice
1 T. sour cream
Put this mixture on top of the burgers with lettuce and tomato and serve.
