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 clove of garlic, a small piece of ginger-grated
  • 1/2 tomato-blended
