- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon olive oil

- Drain out any excess water from the Easy Lima Beans.
- In a large bowl, mash the lima beans using a potato masher.
- Add the quinoa, red pepper powder, paprika and lemon juice. Stir to combine.
- Add in the bread crumbs and egg and mix well.
- Using your hands, roll the mixture into tight balls and form patties.
