Black bean and quinoa burgers

After the holidays and after the first week back to school, I finally feel somewhat normal again.

Which also means back to normal food, FINALLY!

Tonight I made black bean, lentil and quinoa burgers.

Prepare the quinoa per package instructions. I used 1/2 c dry quinoa with 1 c water.
Drain and rinse a can of black beans, add to cooked quinoa
If you're lucky and have a neighbor that made too many lentils and gave you some, add those, too.

You'll also need to add some garlic, salt, pepper, couple drops of liquid smoke, couple dashes of Tabasco, fresh cilantro, green onion, green bell pepper and to help it all stick together, add some instant mashed potato flakes and/or bread crumbs.

Don't worry if it falls apart when you pack them into balls and try to flatten them out. They always fall apart.

So pack them into balls and flatten them out a bit. Put some foil on a cookie sheet and spray with Pam. Place the flattened "burgers" on the foil and bake at 375 for, ummmm, I don't know, 15 minutes? Just bake them until you can start to smell them.

I can never remember how much of any spice I add or how long I bake things. This is just what you get when you read my recipes. Sorry.

I made four loaves of bread today. Some rose better than others.

After the "burgers" are done baking, add them to freshly baked bread. Smother the bread with hummus, vegan mayo and lettuce of some sort. Top with avocado slices to make it look fancy. If I had tomatoes, I would have added that, too.

Post a picture on your blog and you're done! YAY!

Well now I'm complete hungry and I'm not a big fan of quinoa. The bread looks.... devine. No wonder the dogs snatch it all time.
