Prepare quinoa according to package directions. Cool to room temperature.
In large bowl, mash black beans coarsely with potato masher, leaving some texture. Mix in quinoa, eggs, bread crumbs, walnuts, feta, green onions and steak spice until combined.
Using greased 1-cup measuring cup, scoop mixture into 4 equal portions. Shape into 1-inch-thick patties.
In large nonstick skillet set over medium heat, add oil. Cook burgers, in batches, for 3 to 4 mins per side or until golden brown and heated through.
Serve on toasted burger buns with your favorite toppings.
Cool quinoa quickly by spreading onto parchment paper-lined baking sheet; place in freezer for 5 mins.
Alternatively, brush both sides of patties with oil. Bake on parchment paper-lined baking sheet in 400°F oven for 5 to 7 mins per side.
Serve burgers with sriracha sauce if desired.
