  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF. Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  2. Combine flax and 5 tablespoons water in a small bowl; stir. Set aside.
  3. In a small saucepan over high heat, add quinoa and 1 cup water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  4. Meanwhile: in a skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Once hot, add onion; cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring. Add bell pepper and jalapeño; cook until vegetables are tender, about 3-5 minutes. Add garlic; cook for 1 minute, until fragrant. Add spinach; stir. Cook until wilted, about 1 minute.
  5. In a large bowl, add black beans; mash with a fork, leaving some texture. Add cooked quinoa, sautéed vegetables, salt, paprika, cumin, pepper, cayenne, and reserved flax mixture. Stir to combine. Add oat flour; stir.
  6. Form 8 patties.** Place on baking sheet.
  7. Bake for 20 minutes, flip, then bake for 20 more minutes, until crispy on the edges.
  8. Store in an airtight container or bag for up to 1 week. You can also freeze and reheat these.


*In a blender or food processor, add oats. Blend into a fine flour.

**To get evenly shaped burgers, line the lid of a jar (I use a peanut butter jar lid) with wax paper or foil. Stuff the lid with the burger mixture, then flip it over onto the baking sheet and remove the wax paper.
