  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 quinoa 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 and 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.


*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.

***Store in an airtight container or bag for up to 1 week. You can also freeze and reheat these.
