1/4 cup Miski Organics Canihua Grains

1/3 cup water

2 tablespoons of chopped red onion

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 cup Miski Organics White Quinoa Flakes

3/4 tsp achiote powder or paste (you can find Achiote paste online)

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp aji amarillo powder or paste (you can find it as paste online)

1/8 tsp cumin

1/8 tsp black pepper

1 large egg or 1 flax egg

2 tablespoons of olive oil


Drain and rinse your black beans. Chop your onions and garlic. In a large bowl, mash your black beans until almost paste-like.

Bring a medium saucepan to high heat, add canihua and water, and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to low and simmer. Process flakes in a food processor.

Add all ingredients into a big bowl and add your egg or flax egg. Mix with your hands.

Shape your burgers, cup each ball in your hands and squeeze tightly. Press it into a small patty.

You can put your patties in the oven for 15-20 minutes at 350. They hold together wonderfully!

For the sauce or “cream” combine vegan mayonnaise with as aji amarillo paste or huacatay paste!
