We are all obsessed with this one – it is going on the weekly food playlist.  You 100% must try it.  The flavors are beyond my expectations.  Who knew a veggie burger could be this good?


  • 1 cup quinoa (COOKED)
  • 4 tbs bbq sauce (i use Annie’s Organic Honey BBQ sauce)
  • 1 tbs molasses
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can black beans, drained, rinsed & mashed
  • 1 carrot, shredded
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, minced

Preheat oven to 425 F.

combine the bbq sauce and molasses in a small bowl and set aside.

in a large bowl, combine the quinoa, beans, jalapeño, shallot, garlic, carrot, breadcrumb, cumin, chili powder, salt, and egg.  add to it 2/3 of the bbq sauce/molasses mixture.

form 6 burger patties and place on a parchment lined baking sheet.

bake for 20-25 minutes – FLIPPING MIDWAY THROUGH.

****use the remaining bbq sauce mixture as a spread on the burger/bun – heavenly.

assemble your burger as desired… i used the following fixins:

  • ezekiel bun
