Gluten-free Quinoa Black-Eyed Beans Mexican Flavored Cheese burger

I have a confession to make πŸ™‚ I haven’t had a burger since going vegan πŸ™‚ I know. I should have tried making one. That’s what I did today πŸ™‚ I got tofutti cheese slices which I have been treasuring to make this yummy burger. Hola! Sabor Mexicano. πŸ™‚ Take this Maccas (Macdonalds) πŸ˜›


You need-[This makes around 6 patties]

  • 1 red onion-very finely chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic, a small piece of ginger-grated
  • 1/2 tomato-blended
  • Spinach-a handful-finely chopped
  • 1 boiled and mashed potato
  • Cooked Quinoa-1/4 cup
  • Chickpea flour-2 Tbsp, Corn flour-2 tsp
  • Cooked and mashed black-eyed beans-1 cup
  • Chili powder-1 tsp
  • Mexican taco seasoning-1.5 Tbsp (more or less depending on how strong it is)
  • Green peas-a handful
  • Salt-to taste



  • In a pan, add oil, add onion and garlic and saute until transparent and add tomato and the seasoning and cook until dry and add the spinach, beans, peas, potato and cook until dry, add a tbsp of chickpea flour and mix it well
  • Add quinoa, rest of chickpea flour and cornstarch and mix them well. Take it off heat and let it cool until you can make patties.
  • Spray oil and cook them in a shallow pan πŸ™‚

Layers of burger

I drew this on my tablet cos it was hard for me describe the layers πŸ˜› Hope this helps πŸ™‚ I will post my easy guacamole recipe I stoleΒ obtained from my Mexican friend πŸ™‚
