Welcome! I’m Catherine. For me, it's important to stretch my mind, travel far, and always have a stash of dark chocolate.

Quinoa Black Bean Burgers

Quinoa Black Bean Burgers I'm excited to let you all know the latest issue of Holl & Lane Magazine is out today! Issue 6 features a Quinoa Black Bean Burger inspired by one of my favorite restaurants in Nashville, Burger Up.

Quinoa Black Bean Burgers

Burger Up is a restaurant in the 12 South neighborhood of Nashville that puts an amazing spin on traditional american fare. Their meats are locally sourced and they have a drink selection that is top notch. Jordan and I bring everyone who visits us to Burger Up. You can't go wrong with anything on their menu!

The day I made these quinoa black bean burgers I was in the throes of morning sickness. I made sure to have Jordan taste test as I couldn't really stomach them! Haha.


1 1/2 cups cooked quinoa 1 carrot, peeled 1/4 small onion 2 TBS. ketchup 1-2 cloves of garlic 1 tsp paprika 1 tsp ground cumin 1/2 tsp chili powder 1 tsp. salt 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed 1/2 cup oats Olive oil Hamburger buns

Maple Ketchup: 2 parts ketchup 2 parts marinara sauce 1 part maple syrup A couple twists of fresh ground pepper

Topping Suggestions:

Cheese, lettuce, tomato, guacamole, pickles, ketchup, mustard

Cook the quinoa according to package directions. In a small bowl mix the ketchup, paprika, cumin, chili powder and salt. In a food processor chop the carrot, onion and garlic until fine. Add the rinsed black beans and spice mix until blended well. Fold in the quinoa and oats until desired consistency. If there is too much liquid add in more oats.

Form into 6 patties. Heat 2 teaspoons olive oil in a non-stick or cast iron skillet. Add the patties and cook for 5-6 minutes on each side.

Happy eating!
