In a small saucepan, bring water and quinoa to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover with a lid and simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until the water has absorbed and quinoa is cooked through. Cook your potatoes whichever way you prefer (I boiled my cubed potatoes in water for about 20 minutes).
Add your cooked sweet potatoes and half of the black beans to a Vitamix or other food processor/blender. Process until combined. Then, transfer contents into a medium bowl and stir in the rest of the black beans, almond meal, quinoa, chopped onion, and spices. Form 8 patties and place on a greased baking sheet. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
In the meantime, preheat the oven to 350F. When ready, bake your burgers for 35-45 minutes until lightly browned cooked through.
