I found a can of black beans in my pantry, and I wondered to myself, what am I supposed to do with this? I rarely eat black beans, and the only recipe I could think of was making a veggie burger. Here is the recipe that I came up with, and I have to tell you, it tastes so meaty and flavorful that its really difficult to tell that it isn’t meat. Now, if I feel like having a burger, I’ll definitely have a veggie burger. It is so many times healthier and not greasy at all.
Black Bean Burger:
1 can (16. oz) black beans
2 large carrots (peeled and cut into pieces)
3 cloves of garlic
1 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 tbs. cumin
bbq sauce- I used about 1/3 cup
breadcrumbs- I used panko
1. Drain the beans really well so you don’t have a soggy burger
2. Onions, garlic, and carrots into the food processor. Pulse until you have small chunks of onions and carrots.
3. In a bowl, mash the black beans until pasty.
4. Combine onion mixture into the beans. Add cumin, cayenne pepper, egg, breadcrumbs, and bbq sauce. Form into patties and either grill or pan fry.
