For the burgers:

  • 1 15-ounce can black beans, rinsed
  • 1/2 cup dry quinoa cooked according to package directions
  • 1/4 cup panko
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon finely minced chipotle in adobo sauce
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 egg lightly beaten

For the relish:

  • 2 ears corn kernels removed
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped yellow onion
  • 1 jalapeño pepper seeded and minced
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • Pinch of salt

For assembling:

  • 6 burger buns
  • 6 slices of cheese optional (I like Whole Foods' Hickory Smoked Cheddar)
  • Sliced tomatoes crema or sour cream, guacamole, lettuce, sliced avocado, cilantro, red onion slices, and/or anything else you like on a burger


To make the burgers:

  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.
  2. Use a fork to smash the black beans in a large bowl. You can leave some intact, but you want about half of them to be mashed because this helps the burgers stay together.
  3. Stir in the quinoa, panko, garlic, chipotle, onion powder, and cumin. Mix well, taste, and season with as much salt as needed, then fold in the egg.
  4. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Divide the burger mixture into 6 equal parts and shape each one into a bun-sized patty on the parchment. Spray the tops with oil or cooking spray.
  5. Bake the burgers for 10 minutes; flip carefully, spray again, and cook for 10-15 minutes more, or until slightly crisp and beginning to brown on the edges. (If you're using cheese, you can put slices on the patties in the last 3 minutes of cooking time.)

To make the relish:

  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a small non-reactive saucepan and bring to a simmer. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

To assemble:

  1. Put the patties on the buns and spoon the relish over the cheese. Top with anything else you like.

Recipe Notes

The relish can be made up to 3 days in advance.
