Vegan Black Bean Burgers
IntroductionThis recipe was originally designed to make only 2 burgers however I prefer the smaller slider size and the nutritional info is for 4 servings. This recipe was originally designed to make only 2 burgers however I prefer the smaller slider size and the nutritional info is for 4 servings.
1/4 cup finely chopped onions
1/4 cup finely chopped carrots
1/4 cup finely chopped peppers (any color)
1/4 cup finely chopped mushrooms
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons ketchup
2 teaspoons dijon mustard
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons ground chili powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup black beans
1/4 cup panko bread crumbs
Patties can be made more uniform by shaping them in the bottom of a cereal bowl or using a hamburger patty shaper. Since they are baked in the oven you can shape them on the pan inside the hamburger ring then remove the ring for perfectly round burgers :)
Remove vegetables from heat and set aside to cool. Once they’re cool enough to handle, place the vegetables into a food processor with the black beans and bread crumbs and pulse a few times to combine.
Form the mixture into two large patties. Place them on a foil-lined baking sheet coated lightly with oil and bake for 15 minutes at 450°. The burgers will hold together, but they’ll always be slightly mushy and have a tendency to crumble if handled too much. Just place them on a bun using a spatula and garnish with your favorite burger toppings.
Serving Size: 4 patties
Number of Servings: 4
