Black Bean Burgers

Black Bean Burgers

These black bean burgers are healthy, delicious, and a tad bit spicy.  They are great with the simple sauce included in the recipe, but are delicious (and vegan) on their own as well.  

I love making a big batch and freezing them for later use.  Feel free to get creative with the patties… slide one into a pretzel bun, crumble it into a burrito, or even mix it into a grain bowl with veggies! 

My personal favorite involves enjoying them with roasted sweet potatoes, fajita veggies, and a Greek yogurt drizzle with lime juice.  Yum!

Black Bean Patty
  cup rolled oats
 2 tbsp chia seeds (or flax seeds)
 1 tbsp dried cilantro (or 2-3 tbsp fresh cilantro)
 1 tsp chili powder
 1 tsp ground cumin
 ¼ tsp paprika
 ½ tsp allspice (optional)
 dash chipotle chili powder
 ¼ tsp salt
 ¼ tsp black pepper
 1 large carrot, roughly chopped
 ½ red onion, diced
 1 clove garlic, minced
 1 bell pepper, diced
 ¾ cup corn
 ½ cup cooked brown rice, quinoa, or farrow (optional)
 1 15 oz can black beans (rinsed and drained)
Sauce
 ¼ cup mayonnaise
 1 tsp sour cream or plain Greek yogurt
 1 tsp ketchup
 ½ tsp smoked paprika
 ½ tsp chile powder
 ¼ tsp lemon juice
 salt

Directions
1

Combine rolled oats, chia seeds, cilantro, chile powder, cumin, paprika, salt, pepper, and allspice in a food processor. Blend until oats become close to a flour, but not quite.

2

Add carrots and blend until finely chopped. Add onions and minced garlic, pulsing until combined.

3

Add bell pepper, corn, brown rice, and black beans (be sure to pat them down with a towel to remove any excess moisture before putting them in the food processor). Pulse until the mixture begins to come together. A few of the beans should still be whole for an ideal texture.

4

Form mixture into patties, about 1/2 inch thick.

5

Cook in a skillet over medium heat with a drizzle of olive oil until browned, about 5 minutes each side.
OR
Bake at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for 20-25 minutes, flipping halfway. If using this method, consider brushing both sides of each patty with olive oil before baking.
