Quinoa-White Bean Veggie Burgers

Quinoa-White Bean Veggie BurgersAuthor: Lily Mazzarella
2 cups cooked white beans
3/4 cups cooked quinoa red or tricolor looks nicest in this recipe
1 tbsp tahini
2 tbsp ground flax seed
2 tbsp finely chopped onion or shallot
1 cup cooked, finely chopped greens, water squeezed out. I use rainbow chard or frozen chopped organic spinach.
2 tsp lemon zest
2 tsp Thyme
2 tsp lemon or lime juice, or apple cider vinegar
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp Pepper
Water, as needed

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, and mix thoroughly (I use my hands). Add a little water if you need to moisten the mixture. It should be a workable, thick "dough" that sticks together.

Divide into 6 patties and refrigerate for at least 1 hour (overnight works well, too).

In a heavy sauté pan, heat coconut oil and cook patties in batches, about 12 minutes on each side, until golden brown.

These can also be brushed with olive or coconut oil and cooked in a 450F oven for about 25-30 minutes.

Serve in a lettuce wrap with Ranch-ish Dressing
