Quinoa Burgers

There are hundreds of quinoa burger recipes out there.  After researching all the different variations of recipes and trialing a few of them I have my very own.  These burgers are a great meatless option for vegetarians or even meat eaters who want something a little different.  I'm looking forward to grilling them this summer!
1/2 c quinoa
3/4 c water
1/4 onion diced
1//4 carrot diced
15 oz can black beans, rinsed
3 Tbsp egg whites
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1/2 t Italian seasoning
1/2 T cumin
1/2 T paprika
garlic, salt, pepper to taste

First cook your quinoa, bring 3/4c water to boil and add quinoa. 
Cover quinoa, reduce to simmer and cook for about 10 -12 min
While quinoa is cooking dice onion and carrot
Once quinoa is cooked add all ingredients to a blender and blend until mixed well
Separate mixture into 6-8 patties and cook on a lightly greased skillet for 6-7 min on each side
Happy Cooking!
Love, T
