1-15 oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup cooked quinoa, packed*
1/2 cup frozen corn, thawed (or canned)

1 1/2-2 tsp himalayan salt
1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds

Step 1 - Combine all ingredients except for brown rice flour and corn into a food processor. Pulse until pureéd, while still leaving some texture and chunkiness.
Step 2 - Remove mixture from food processor and place into a large bowl. Stir in brown rice flour and corn until mixture is well-combined. Place until the refrigerator for 15 minutes to thicken and set.
Step 3 - Using a measuring cup, take 1/3 cup of burger mixture and form into patties.
Step 4 - Set your air-fryer to 400 degrees and cook for 8-10 minutes, depending on how cooked you would like your burgers. Burgers will come out softer at first. Allow to cool for at least 5 minutes prior to serving
