1 clove garlic, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup red beans (canned) ,rinsed and drained 65 mL
1/2 cup walnuts 50 g
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, coarsely chopped 9 g
1/2 tsp ground cumin 2 g
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper 0.4 g

Before you start

A blender or food processor will be very useful to make the patties.

Method

  1. Place the quinoa in a fine strainer and hold it under cold running water until the water runs clear, then drain well. Put it in a saucepan with the water and a pinch of salt. Bring to a rolling boil. Reduce the heat, cover, then simmer until the grains are translucent and the germ has spiralled out from each grain, about 15 minutes. Add a little more water if it looks too dry. Drain if there is too much water.
  2. Put the quinoa in a blender together with the soy sauce, onion, garlic, benas, nuts, cliantro , and spices. Pulse until finely chopped, then season to taste.
  3. Form the mixture into 9 cm (3.5 in) patties. Chill at least 10 min (up to 4 h).
  4. Meanwhile, stir together the mayonnaise, mustard and lemon juice. Set aside.
  5. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the patties and cook until golden-brown, about 8 min total, turning them once gently (they are not quite as firm as meat burgers).
  6. Serve each patty on a toast with the sauce.
