1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 Egg
(Egg substitute 1 tablespoons flax meal + 2.5 tablespoons water)

1. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add chopped onion; let it cook for a few minutes, stirring often. Add bell pepper and garlic; cook until the onion is translucent, about 2 minutes. Add the greens and stir immediately, letting it wilt slightly. Turn the heat off.
2. In a large bowl, add black beans; mash with a fork, leaving some texture. Add cooked quinoa and remaining ingredients.
3. Form patties in 1/2C portions. If mixture is still wet and sticky lightly sprinkle some more oat flour on top of the formed patties.

6. Serve on a whole-wheat hamburger bun or Salad with guacamole, Mango salsa or corn salad.
