MainRecipesVegetarian | Quinoa and Black Bean Burgers with Tomatillo Guacamole

   Quinoa and Black Bean Burgers with Tomatillo Guacamole submitted by Mom Johnson
These are yummy served on an English muffin or just by themselves!

In a 2-quart saucepan, bring the broth to a simmer; add the quinoa, cover, turn the heat to medium-low and cook until tender and all the liquid is absorbed, 10-15 minutes. Remove from the heat and let stand for 3-5 minutes. Uncover and fluff with a fork.
Heat 2 T.oil in an 8-inch skillet over medium heat. Add the poblanos, green onions and garlic and cook stirring until just softened, 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a food processor. Add the beans and quinoa and pulse until the beans are chopped and the mixture is combined.
Transfer the mixture to a large bowl and gently stir in the cilantro, panko, egg, chile powder, cumin and 1/2 tsp. salt. With wet hands, gently form 6, 1/2 inch thick patties. Refrigerate, uncovered until firm, at least 30 minutes and up to 4 hours.
Make the guacamole by mixing all ingredients together, mashing lightly and season to taste with salt and lime juice.
Cook the burgers by heating the remaining oil in a heavy-duty skillet over medium heat until shimmering. Cook half the burgers until well-browned on one side, about 2 minutes. Flip and brown the other side. Repeat with remaining burgers. Transfer to a serving plate and serve with guacamole and English muffins. Serves 6.
