Here’s an ode to the nostalgic summer BBQ memory of biting into a juicy burger with all the fixings. We have created this juicy meat-free rendition that will have your taste buds salivating with anticipation, just like that summer meal. With BōKU Super Food added to the mix, these patties will be packed with essential vitamins, minerals, digestive enzymes, and phytonutrients to make you the super person you are; plus, the plant-based proteins from quinoa and black beans will make you savor every bite of your homemade BōKU Super Burger.
- Prep: 10 mins
- Cook: 45 mins
1Stir together quinoa and 1 ½ cups water in small saucepan, and season with salt, if desired. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 20 minutes, or until all liquid is absorbed. (This will give you 1½ cups cooked quinoa.)
2Meanwhile, place onion and sun-dried tomatoes in medium nonstick skillet, and cook over medium heat. (The oil left on the tomatoes should be enough to sauté the onion.) Cook 3 to 4 minutes, or until onion has softened. Stir in ¾ cup black beans, garlic, steak seasoning, and 1½ cups water. Simmer 10 to 12 minutes, or until most of liquid has evaporated.
3Transfer bean-onion mixture to food processor, add ¾ cup cooked quinoa, 2 tablespoons of Boku Super Food, and process until smooth. Transfer to bowl, and stir in remaining ¾ cup quinoa and remaining ¾ cup black beans. Season with salt and pepper, if desired, and let cool.
4Preheat oven to 350°F, and generously coat baking sheet with cooking spray. Shape bean mixture into 8 patties (½ cup each), and place on prepared baking sheet. Bake 20 minutes, or until patties are crisp on top. Flip patties with spatula, and bake 10 minutes more, or until both sides are crisp and brown. Serve on buns with all of your favorite toppings! We love to use romaine lettuce, tomatoes and purple onion.
