White Bean Quinoa Veggie Burgers

  • Author: by Mary
  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 30 mins
  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 4-6 1x


  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1 can (15 oz.) white beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 onion, medium-sized
  • 2 tsp fresh thyme
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 pinch nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup corn
  • 1 small bell pepper
  • 1 jalapeno {seeds removed if you want less spice}
  • juice of one lemon
  • 1/4 cup ground flax seeds
  • salt & pepper to taste


  1. Cook your quinoa and beans, and set aside.
  2. In a food processor, combine the remaining ingredients {excluding the flax, salt, and pepper}. Pulse until chopped, then add the beans. Pulse again until everything is in very fine pieces, but is not one smooth mess. Transfer to a bowl, and mix in the quinoa, then flax seeds, salt, and pepper.
  3. If the mixture is still very wet, add a flour {oat flour is my favorite for veggie burgers} of your choice a few Tablespoons at a time. The mixture should be dry enough that you can shape it into patties, but wet enough that you’ll still have a little bit on your hands.Form all of the dough into patties about 1″ thick.
  4. Heat a heavy skillet over medium heat. Add oil if it isn’t non-stick, and cook the patties until golden on each side.
  5. Serve on buns of your choice with greens, tomatoes, and condiments.
