Soak beans in water overnight. Reconstituted beans will now be around 15 oz. (M read that doing this releases the chemical in the bean that causes flatulence. Go science!)
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. DO NOT ADD SALT. Add beans.
Cook beans at a simmer for 50 minutes.
Drain and let cool.
Bring medium pot of water to a boil. (Follow package instructions for proper water ratio.)
Add quinoa and then simmer (covered)for 15-20 minutes.
Heat oven to 400 degrees.
Remove quinoa from heat.
Mash black beans in a large bowl.
Add all other ingredients (including quinoa) and mix like crazy. Get in there and use your hands!
Form mixture into patties, about the size of a burger. They don't grow much.
Place on baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes each side (or til browned).
