Number of Servings: 6


    1/2 c dry kidney beans
    1/2 c dry quinoa
    1 tsp salt (divided)
    1 tsp pepper
    1 tsp basil
    1 tsp oregano
    2 tsp cumin
    1/4 c corn starch
    1 tbsp olive oil (plus some for frying)


soak the kidney beans a few hours ahead of time so they soften up and are easier to cook. i let mine soak for at least 6 hours so they began to sprout, which activates their enzymes and starts breaking down their complex carbohydrates to help you digest them better.

cook the beans with the quinoa in 2 cups of water covered on low heat for about 20-30 minutes until most of the water has cooked off and the beans and quinoa are tender.

let cool for at least 10 minutes.

in a medium sized bowl mash the beans with a potato masher or fork so there arne’t big chunks. mix in the spices, corn starch and oil.

in a medium-sized frying pan heat up some olive oil (i used 1 tablespoon per patty) over medium heat. fry the patties until they are brown on each side, which should take about 1-2 minutes.

you’ll notice the patties will turn a nice toasty brown, not unlike the color of an actual hamburger.

serve immediately or keep warm on a plate in the oven at 200F.
