Naturally sweet meatless Quinoa and Black Bean Patties are packed with nutrients, fiber and ton of flavor! Easy to put together recipe that comes together in an hour.

Quinoa and Black Bean PattiesIs 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. And today’s recipe Quinoa and Black Bean Patties is enriched with a secret ingredient. Can you guess the secret ingredient? 

Well keep reading and I promise I will not keep you in suspense for long. 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. 

Quinoa is a great option for vegetarians because it actually contains all the nutrients and vitamins you would get from eating meat. And above all it’s gluten-free and vegan! The secret ingredient adds a delicious flavor and texture to these patties. And the secret ingredient is …..drumroll….. homemade-burger-buns-22

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.Quinoa and Black Bean Patties

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.

        Hi. For both Black beans and quinoa, when you refer to 1 cup is it post cooking or dry volume?

        • Ruchi says:

          Sorry for the confusion – these are cooked black beans and quinoa measurements.
          Will update the recipe too.

      2. MrsG says:

        Dear Ruchi,
        Please may I ask if the recipe requires 1 cup of cooked quinoa or 1 cup of raw quinoa to be cooked? Thank you.

        • Ruchi says:

          Thanks for stopping by Mrs.G, it’s mentioned in the ingredients section – 1 cup boiled/cooked quinoa.

          • Mrs G says:

            Thank you Ruchi, I made these last week and they were fabulous!! Great “meaty” texture, great for vegetarians! I’m sorry if my question wasn’t clear..it’s just that as you will know 1 cup of uncooked quinoa expands after cooking and I thought it looked like a bit too much..but it was fine. Thanks again. Keep up the great work. This is my favourite website for recipes.

            • Ruchi says:

              No worries Mrs. G. 😍😍 I too believe in clearing all doubts before I advance with a recipe.
              I am happy to learn that you liked the recipe.
              Thanks for sharing your experience with me. 🙂

        Dear Ruchi,

        I love your website! Thank you so much for the effort you put into it. Please may I make a request? It would be perfection if your dry weights could be in grams instead of measurements usually used for liquids. I think others have commented the same elsewhere. Thank you

        Any idea of the calories roughly for one patti?? Thanks

      5. Reecha says:

        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!
