Perfect Black Bean Patties

IMG_5591

I have been searching for a long time for a decent bean burger recipe….and I think I finally found it!!!  Off of a blog Skinny Taste. The key it seems is to FREEZE the burgers before frying them so they stay in the proper shape in the pan.  These have a delicious flavour to them and aren’t bland like all the other ones that I tried before.  And talk about a nutrition power house 😀

Ingredients:

16 oz can black beans, rinsed and drained

1/2 carrot

1/2 cup chopped scallions/onions

3 tbsp chopped cilantro

3 cloves garlic, peeled

1 large egg

1 tbsp cumin

1/4 to 1/2 tsp kosher salt

1 tsp hot sauce

1/2 cup gluten free quick oats or gf bread crumbs

Directions:

1. In a food processor, finely chop carrot, cilantro, onion, garlic.  Then add oats, then eggs and spices. Then stir into mashed beans.

2. Divide mixture into six patties (using slightly oiled hands helps) and place them onto a flat surface covered with wax paper.  (If it’s too wet add another tablespoon of oats)

3. Freeze at least 2 hours before cooking or keep frozen until ready to cook.

4. Heat a lightly sprayed skillet to medium heat and cook frozen burgers about 7 minutes on each side.
