One of my families favorite burgers! We are making this today :) The base recipe came from the Veganomicon and we modified it a bit to our liking. You can make these in advance and freeze them for later use (separate with wax paper so you can get them apart). Enjoy!
stuff you will need:
2 – 15 oz black beans (drained and rinsed)
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1/2 cup whole grain bread crumbs
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 tbsp tomato paste
1/4 cup cilantro (finely chopped)
2 garlic cloves (pressed)
1 small onion (chopped)
*1 jalapeño (finely chopped) *optional if you like it spicy!
what to do with the stuff:
Mash beans in a mixing bowl. Can leave a few half beans for texture but no whole beans. Add all other ingredients and mix with fork and then knead with hands until firm and uniform. Divide and make patties. Heat heavy skillet with small amount of olive oil and cook 5 minutes on each side.
Note: they look like regular burgers but the are a little mushy. I like to eat mine in a pita pocket and stuff it full of good veggies, avocado, red onions, lettuce, tomato, really what ever you like.
