Black Bean Burger

I have been on a mission to find a great staple bean burger recipe for a while. It turns out to be so simple, that I must have overlooked it all along. Double this recipe, and freeze these guys to have on hand--they are worth it!!

What You'll Need:

1 c gluten free rolled oats

2 can black beans, rinsed and drained

1/2 an onion
1/2 Tbsp chili powder
1 large egg
1/2 tsp sea salt

black pepper to taste

Pulse oats in a food processor until fine. Add most of the beans (reserving about 1/2 cup), puree until smooth.

Transfer to a large bowl.. Add egg, spices & remaining beans. Stir well!

Divide into 4 equal patties. 

Cook in a warm skillet until browned (about 4 minutes each side).. These grill well too!

Serve with your favorite fixings. I love mine open faced with sauteed spinach, pickles, fresh tomato, sprouts and avocado. 

Serves 4. Want more awesome recipes like this? Check out our meal plans!
