Best Black Bean Burger – Vegan!

I’ve seen recipes for veggie burgers floating around, but they always look complex, or in all honesty, they have strange ingredients as to not sound appetizing. I came across this recipe in Parent’s Magazine, and although it was not vegan I made a few minor adjustments and yay! Amazingly delicious dinner!!

Veggie Burger & Fries
Makes 4 Patties

1 can black beans
½ cup rolled oats
3 tsps chili powder
1 tsp onion powder
¼ teaspoon paprika
1 TBLS minced garlic
Salt & black pepper to taste
1 TBLS cornstarch
water as needed
Whole Wheat Buns
Leaf Lettuce
1 Tomato, sliced
1 avocado, add lemon juice & salt to make guacamole
Coconut cooking spray

1. Place the beans, oats, seasonings, and cornstarch in a food processor and pulse until chunky but not pureed; if it seems dry or isn’t sticking together, add a little liquid a tablespoon at a time – you want a moist but not wet mixture. Let mixture rest in the fridge for a few minutes.
2. With wet hands, shape into patties; refrigerate for 15 to 20 minutes if your schedule permits.
3. Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium-high and spray oil to coat the bottom of the pan. When hot, add the patties and cook until nicely browned on one side, about 5 minutes; turn carefully and cook on the other side until firm and browned, about another 5 minutes.
4. Serve on Whole Wheat Buns with the usual burger fixings. I also usually serve these with my Roasted Wedge Fries recipe, however the photo is from a day that I did not have time to make them.
