Happy Wednesday! Hope everyone is getting through the week. And for those kiddos & teachers, good luck going back to school…
This recipe is for my cousin, Claudia! She recently asked me about an easy black bean burger recipe and I knew exactly which one I wanted to share, it just took me a while to find this in my pile of books & recipes but I finally did! I love this recipe because it’s incredibly easy and hardly uses any ingredients, and the ingredients are those which I usually have. I found this a while ago on the Happy Herbivore website. The only change I make to it is to double the recipe, so I can freeze some extra burgers, and I also use fresh grated onion rather than onion powder. For toppings, you can create your own masterpiece there. In the pictures I topped with a mixture of veganaise, hot sauce & chives. It was delicious, but I was wishing I had an avocado to go with it as well. If you’re looking for a bean burger with a few more healthy ingredients, check out these as well. Enjoy!
2 15 oz can of black beans
4 TBS ketchup
2 TBS yellow mustard
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp fresh grated onion (or onion powder)
2/3 cup instant oats (or regular oats, pulsed in blender 4-5 times)
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Rinse and drain the black beans, then place in a large bowl. With a fork or potato masher, mash about 3/4 of the beans.
Next, add in the ketchup, mustard, garlic, onion and oats. If you don’t have instant oats, you can pulse steel cut/old fashioned oats in a blender or food processor just 4-5 times. Mix everything in the bowl until well combined.
Next, flatten and score your mixture to create even size portions. Spray a baking sheet with EVOO or Canola Oil spray, form the mixture into patties and set on the baking sheet.
Bake for 7 minutes then flip each burger over carefully, then bake for another 7 minutes. So easy!
