Step 1

Make the quinoa burger patties. In a large bowl, combine onion, quinoa, beans, arrowroot flour, oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder and cilantro.

Step 2

Mash all the ingredients together by hand. The black beans should become pasty.

Step 3

Form sliders into three-ounce portions.

Step 4

On medium heat, pan-fry or grill your patties 4-6 minutes on each side until caramelized and golden brown. Set aside.

Step 5

In either a food processor or a blender, mix the mayonnaise, chipotle peppers, garlic, cilantro, black pepper, cumin, paprika and salt until aioli reaches a smooth consistency. Set aside.

Step 6

Serve each quinoa burger over crisp lettuce, topped with chipotle aioli and avocado. Enjoy!


Notes:

The heat of the chipotle aioli can be adjusted by the amount of the canned chipotle peppers you use.

Amazing recipe and much better than some of the fully processed vegetarian vegan patties in the market. Thank you for this :)
