Quinoa Black Bean Burgers

Quinao Black Bean Burger

Spring is in the air!  Many parts of Canada are still buried under a lot of snow, but it is April and Easter is behind us, so I can’t help thinking of days spent outside and the deliciousness of BBQ’d burgers.

As you know, Jamie and I live in an apartment so we don’t have the luxury of firing up a BBQ whenever the mood strikes us, but that has never stopped us from using our indoor cast iron grill to cook up a burger or two.  The only downside of this is the amount of smoke that is created by using the indoor grill.

This weekend I wanted to try a vegetarian burger, so see if we could get the same burger satisfaction using black beans and quinoa.  My sister, Cherie, shared this recipe with me.  She swears by it, so I thought that we could give it a try.

Gluten-Free Black Bean Brownies

Today the role of guest foodie will be played by Connie’s sister, Cherie.

When I read Connie’s post for ‘Chocolate Brownies’, I felt the need to answer her question of “is there any other kind?”

Well of course there are other types of brownies out there and this is, by far the best Black Bean Brownie recipe that I have come across – and trust me, I have tried a few.  Some are too dry, some are too wet and some are just too, well, beany.  But this was the perfect consistency for a delicious guilt-free brownie treat.
