Quinoa and Black Bean Patties

Is there anyone who doesn’t love Quinoa? I love quinoa in any form – whether be a salad or a patty. More than rice, quinoa is a staple in our house. It is loaded with proteins, easy to digest and is light on stomach too. A great option for vegetarians because quinoa actually contains all the nutrients and vitamins you would get from eating meat. And above all it’s gluten-free and vegan!

Past week, I had published a post on Homemade mini burgers and my today’s recipe – Quinoa and black bean patties is a perfect accompaniment to them. For a delicious flavor and texture I have added a secret ingredient to my patties. Can you guess it?homemade-burger-buns-22

It’s mashed sweet potatoes – a surprisingly nutritious vegetable that lends an incredibly creamy texture to these patties and is downright irresistible! Easy to assemble recipe and cooking time is fairly minimal.

Combine everything in a bowl, add spices, gluten-free oats flour and mix everything together. Adjust seasonings to taste and shape them like patties. Lightly oil a skillet and cook the patties on a medium heat until crispy and crunchy. Serve hot with your favorite sauce or chutney.

TIPS

  • If not making it gluten-free, substitute oats-flour with breadcrumbs.  
  • If you want to make your patties spicier, just add a bit more paprika and mix. 
  • Substitute sweet potato for butternut squash. Compared to sweet potato, squash has more water content so add a couple of extra tablespoon of oats flour to the mix.
  • The best part is these patties freezes beautifully. To freeze, wrap the patties in a wax paper and store them airtight container.
  • When ready to use, cook frozen patties in a heated skillet on a medium heat until crispy and crunchy.

    I am not a fan of sweet potato. What can I replace it with?
    Also what is the purpose of oat flour?

    • Ruchi says:

      Reecha, use regular potato as a substitute. Oats flour is used as a binding agent. Any flour – gramflour (besan), rice flour or even soaked and drained flattened rice (poha) can be used as a substitute. Thanks and happy cooking!
