Black bean quinoa burger recipe.

So beans and rice week at church has about turned me into a full fledged vegetarian!!! I have been wanting a burger all week and this was my answer to staying with my pledge to aid other’s through sacrifice and having the burger I really wanted. I have to say that it was an interesting flavor.  Topped with cheese and buttery bread, it was enough of a look-a-like that I was happy: #beansandriceweek continues!
